Americans have a long tradition of collecting Asian art, and through their support have made our cultural institutions world leaders in the fields of Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and Himalayan art. With interest surging in these areas, it is most timely that Asia Week New York will present an important panel discussion entitled Opportunities and Perspectives in Collecting Asian Art at The Winter Show on Sunday, January 26th at the Park Avenue Armory, in New York, at 2:30 p.m.
