See it first! Join us for a members-only preview and celebration of Nepalese Seasons: Rain and Ritual. This special evening will includea wine and beer reception with light fare.

Nepalese Seasons illuminates the deep interconnection between the natural environment, cultural traditions, and people of Nepal’s Kathmandu Valley. Nepal, situated on the southern slope of the Himalayas, is dependent on monsoon rain, and Nepalese Seasons is the first exhibition of its kind dedicated to exploring Nepalese works of art in the context of the seasons and related rituals.

Individual members are entitled to one ticket and Dual/Senior members and above are entitled to two tickets. This event is for current members. Join in advance to attend.
