    Gifts of the Connoisseurs' Council

    Founded in 1985 as a support group for the Asian Art Museum, the Connoisseurs’ Council is a museum organization of collectors and enthusiasts who focus on acquiring objects to expand and enhance the museum’s collection. Members of the Connoisseurs’ Council gather at a very special dinner event to vote on works of art proposed for purchase by the museum’s curatorial team. Many of those works of art are featured in this collection.
