Asian Collection

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art has a collection of approximately 250 works of Asian art. Included in that collection are Chinese export ware porcelains, Japanese netsuke, Chinese snuff bottles, Japanese paintings and prints, textiles and wood carvings from the Swat Valley along the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan, Chinese and Japanese hanging scroll paintings, Chinese and Korean ceramics and bronzes, and Japanese woodblock prints. In 2008, the museum’s Asian Collection was catalogued as part of the ASIANetwork - Luce Asian Art in the Undergraduate Curriculum Project. This project taps collections of Asian art and visual culture on select college campuses to help faculty integrate these resources into their curricula. A selection of works from this collection is on permanent view in the museum.
