[Photo Story] New Palmer Museum Of Art Exhibit Showcases Asian Heritage

Last week, the Palmer Museum of Art opened its first exhibition of the school year.

“Global Asias: Contemporary Asian & Asian American Art” highlights the work of 15 selected artists of Asian heritage. The exhibit was organized in association with the Jordan Schnitzer Family Foundation and will begin a national tour in 2022. Dr. Chang Tan, assistant professor of art history and Asian studies at Penn State, guest-curated the show.

Global Asias explores the common motifs amongst the Asian and Asian-American artists, and is split into three sections: Exuberant Forms, Moving Stories, and Asias Reinvented.

Explorations in sculpture, paintings, etchings, and more can be seen on display in the Palmer’s upstairs exhibit space.

Check out “Global Asias” while you can. The exhibit is open to the public until December 12, 2021.
