Members: Member Preview—The Jeweled Isle: Art from Sri Lanka

11 am | Fri, December 7, 2018
Resnick Pavilion

Members see it first. Members see it free. 

The Jeweled Isle: Art from Sri Lanka presents some 250 works addressing nearly two millennia of Sri Lankan history. The Jeweled Isle includes precious decorative objects fashioned from gold, silver, and ivory, and 19th-century photographs documenting Sri Lanka’s extraordinary monuments, scenery, and flora. Featuring LACMA’s rarely displayed collection of Sri Lankan art—one of the finest and most extensive in the U.S.—the exhibition presents a timely exploration and celebration of a geographically complex, ethnically diverse, and multicultural South Asian hub.

There are two additional Member Previews for this exhibition (December 6–8).
