WASHINGTON, D.C. LOCAL EVENTS
The Smithsonian Museum of Asian and Eastern Arts comprised of historic Freer and Sackler Galleries re-opened its doors
The intimate Freer Gallery of Art was the Smithsonian’s first art museum when it opened in 1923 to house the collection of Detroit industrialist Charles Lang Freer, with a unique commitment to highlighting the dialogue between Asian and American art. While it was closed for the past 19 months for renovations, curators re-envisioned the permanent installations — featuring works from the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent and East Asia — to make them more accessible to contemporary museumgoers.
An enchanting Tibetan shrine room is a standout at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery. The Sackler has reopened after minor renovations. Its sister, the Freer Gallery of Art, was closed for nearly two years while it underwent larger updates.
