The Asia Society was founded in 1956 by John D. Rockefeller III to foster understanding between Asians and Americans. In 1979, Mr. Rockefeller and his wife granted this institution a collection of over 300 works ranging from paintings, ceramics and sculpture which date as far back as 2000 BC.
The Asian Society’s pan-Asian approach to covering all of Asia’s cultures is evident in its exhibitions and its other offerings. Exhibitions of ancient and modern art, as well as programs consisting of the performing arts, lectures, films, speeches are what make this institution.
