Expressions of Gender in Asian Art is topic on June 15
Gender-fluid and gender-ambiguous depictions have existed in Asian art for thousands of years. A docent from the Asian Art Museum will join the Menlo Park Library on Wednesday, June 15, from 6:30 to 7:30 pm for a virtual presentation taking a look at how gender appears throughout Asian art in provocative and inspiring ways. Register via Zoom.
