Asian Art Society

Founded in 1975, the Asian Art Society (AAS) aims to cultivate greater interest in the IMA through the Museum’s renowned collection of Asian Art. Members of the AAS support the IMA‘s Asian art collection by assisting in the selection and acquisition of new works of art for the Asian Art Department and co-sponsoring dinners and lectures with prominent art collectors, historians, and dealers. Events hosted by the AAS have included lectures on such topics as Life and Art in the Ming Dynasty, Japanese Screens, The Art of Kabuki, and many more. The AAS is led by a Board of Directors and is advised by John Teramoto, Curator of Asian Art and a Museum Affiliate liaison.
