This exhibition is dedicated to the magnificent art created between 400 and 800 A.D., the seminal era of the Silla Kingdom. Co-organized with the National Museums of Korea in Seoul and Gyeongju and drawn from the holdings of these institutions, it will introduce audiences to the remarkable artistic achievements of a small kingdom that rose to prominence, embraced cosmopolitanism, and gained control of the entire Korean peninsula. Included among the works on display are designated National Treasures with few parallel examples in Western museums. Highlights will include spectacular gold crowns and regalia, rare objects from Central and West Asia, and Buddhist sculptures and reliquaries.
Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
