Upcoming Events at the Petterson Museum
A LONG TIME AGO, IN A KINGDOM FAR AWAY...
CHINA BEFORE THE MING
Inaugurating a year-long series of exhibits highlighting Chinese history and culture, the Petterson Museum will be showing 150 pieces from its collections of ancient artifacts dating from the Shang Dynasty (1700-1027 B.C.E.) to the Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368) beginning in late January 2014. This is the first time in the history of the museum that these ceramic, stone and metal objects will all be on display at the same time. Supplementing these will be ink rubbings from early Han dynasty ancestral shrines (206 B.C.E.-220 C.E.) as well as later Nestorian Christian sites from the Tang Dynasty (618-906 C.E.).
