Exhibit: Arts of the Book in Asia

May 7 - July 31, 2019

From palm-leaf manuscripts to Chinese handscrolls and Islamic codices, books have long served as vehicles of religious, cultural, and artistic expression in Asia. Each student from Prof. Murad Mumtaz’ Art History / Asian Studies 273 course selected an object from the Chapin Library collections to research and exhibit. Their curatorial work helped identify and contextualize these objects, many of which are now being exhibited for the first time.
