Rachel Saunders, the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Associate Curator of Asian Art, will give this gallery talk. The talk will highlight recent discoveries about this significant 13th-century Japanese icon, Prince Shōtoku at Age Two, currently featured in the exhibition Prince Shōtoku: The Secrets Within, on view May 25 through August 11, 2019 in the University Teaching Gallery on Level 3.

Our galleries are full of stories—this series of drop-in talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques, and reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists, and other contributors.

Free with museums admission. Gallery talks are limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before each talk, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.

Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk. Museums staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
