2009-2010 Lecture Season Begins!

Our lecture season is off to a rousing start with lectures by eminent scholar of Asian art and archaeology Lothar von Falkenhausen. Professor von Falkenhausen followed his Halloween lecture on Chinese bronzes at the MIA with an impromptu tour of the bronze galleries (pictured here), which was a terrific complement to the lecture and a wonderful opportunity to get an expert tour of part of the MIA’s stellar Asian collection! On Nov. 2, Professor von Falkenhausen delivered two additional lectures – one at the University of Minnesota and another at Macalester College. We would like to thank Professor von Falkenhausen for speaking on a variety of topics and AIA-MN would also like to thank the Art and Art History Departments at Macalester College and the University of St. Thomas for making Professor von Falkenhausen’s visit possible.
