World in Porcelain

September 15, 2018 – March 16, 2019

This fall, the museum will be the first in the United States to host “World in Porcelain: 16th – 19th Century Export Porcelain”, showcasing a private collection of porcelain. Porcelain was one of China’s primary trading exports during the Maritime Silk Road period that lasted for more than 300 years. The museum invites visitors to be among the first in the country to view this collection of plates, vases, bowls and more as a symbol of Chinese culture, history and art.
