Inside Scoop: Asia Society and Museum

The Asia Society and Museum in New York City houses both traditional and modern works of art by Asian and Asian-American artists. Founded in 1956 by American businessman and philanthropist John D. Rockefeller as way to help educate Americans on Asia and Asian culture, today the society is a global institution. While headquartered in New York City, multiple outlets exist across the United States.

Focused on arts, business, culture, education, and policy, this educational institution generates ideas and fosters cooperation between America and Asia. The Asia Society and Museum specifically seeks to address issues around globalization, the status of Asian women, and environmental and urban challenges.
