In honor of the special exhibition Buddha, Shiva, Lotus, Dragon: The Mr. and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller 3rd Collection at Asia Society, the Museum Shop in the Renzo Piano Pavilion features homeware, accessories and gifts inspired by the Asian art of the Rockefeller Collection. Visitors can expect to see Japanese teapots, dragon-adorned bowls and Chinese blue-and-white homeware, among other pieces.



In this beautifully illustrated volume, written by Adriana Proser, formerly Asia Society Museum’s John H. Foster Senior Curator of Traditional Asian Art and now the Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Quincy Scott Curator of Asian Art at the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, stunning artworks from across the continent testify to the diversity and ingenuity of Asian artistic cultures and art’s capacity to encourage cross-cultural exchange. Buddha and Shiva, Lotus and Dragon is available at the Museum Shop and online.



The Kimbell Art Museum, owned and operated by the Kimbell Art Foundation, is internationally renowned for both its collections and its architecture. The Kimbell’s collections range in period from antiquity to the 20th century and include European masterpieces by artists such as Fra Angelico, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Bernini, Velázquez, Monet, Cézanne, Picasso and Matisse; important collections of Egyptian and classical antiquities; and the art of Asia, Africa and the Ancient Americas.

The museum’s 1972 building, designed by the American architect Louis I. Kahn, is widely regarded as one of the outstanding architectural achievements of the modern era. A second building, designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, opened in 2013 and now provides space for special exhibitions, dedicated classrooms and a 289-seat auditorium with excellent acoustics for music.
