A Public Exhibition of the Bamboo Musical Instruments from Yunnan, China (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

*WU Campus - Hatfield Library

Introduction to the Exhibition on the Bamboo Musical Instruments from Yunnan, China: Bamboo was one of the eight types of materials for musical instruments in China over three thousand years ago. Bamboo musical instruments have been essential not only to the elite music, but also to the folk music in China. In the ethnically diverse Southwestern region in Yunnan, China, bamboo musical instruments are also historically and culturally associated with different ethnic groups. This exhibition displays the diverse creativity in making bamboo musical instruments in Yunnan, and demonstrates the continuity of the local culture in this global age.

Event Image Exhibition | "David Roberts: Travels in the Holy Land" | Aug. 10 - Dec. 22
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

David Roberts (1796-1864) was a Scottish painter who traveled to the Near East in the late 1830s and produced a series of bound, hand-colored lithographs of Egypt and the Holy Land in the 1840s from sketches made during his travels. These folios provided Europeans, and eventually Americans, with their first views of the exotic Orient, changing forever their vision of Egypt and the Middle East. This small exhibition features several of Roberts’ prints.
