La Salle University Art Museum Gallery Opening

November 30, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Please join us for the opening reception of the new special exhibition, Treasures of Immortality: Ancient Chinese Funerary Art. The focus of the exhibition revolves around ancient China’s production of mingqi, or spirit goods. These earthenware figures were placed within funerary spaces to fulfill the needs of the deceased throughout the afterlife. While most remnants of early China do not survive, an evaluation of mingqi provides viewers the opportunity to better understand daily life in the ancient world.
