[VIRTUAL] Docent Led Tour of Eat and Celebrate
Explore food culture and celebrations through Asian art at the National Museum of Asian Art.
Date: Wednesday, December 1, 2021 at 5:00-6:00 pm
Location: Virtual by Zoom. Link will be sent with registration.
Food is an important part of holiday celebrations throughout the world. Just in time for the holidays in the United States, you can join our docents to investigate works of art across Asia to discover how people in the past and the present celebrated through food and rituals. What foods were important and how they were grown or made? How and when were certain foods eaten? What special meaning did some foods have and why? What rituals and foods are still part of cultural traditions that people observe today? Explore food culture and celebrations through art.
These live, interactive tours feature high-resolution images of artworks and provide virtual visitors an opportunity to engage in conversation with the museum’s docents. The tours are thematic explorations of both the museum’s permanent collections and special exhibitions. Using the online meeting platform Zoom, participants have the opportunity to examine and respond to exceptional artworks.
