September – December 2018
This event offers local artists and art enthusiasts the opportunity to meet each other, create, and collaborate.
7:00 – 8:00 pm | Artist Jacob Hashimoto and curator Jacqueline Chao discuss Hashimoto’s newest site-specific installation and exhibition JACOB HASHIMOTO: Clouds and Chaos.
8:00 – 10:00 pm | Bring a friend or make some new ones, as you create a collaborative work of art in the spirit of JACOB HASHIMOTO: Clouds and Chaos. Following a conversation with curator Jacqueline Chao and Jacob Hashimoto, each team of artists will have one hour to create an artwork using only the materials provided. This friendly competition culminates with each participant voting on each team’s work, with the winners receiving a signed catalog from Jacob Hashimoto and an artist level membership. Beer and wine will be available. Must be 21 or older to participate.
This book signing has been postponed. We will update with the new date soon!
It is funny, inspiring and practical. Stan Went Fishing: Stories and Images of Waking Up is by a dear friend of the Crow Museum, Nancy Dorrier and photographer Paul Fetter, and is made up of delightful little stories that transform some small or large darkness into light. Join Nancy Dorrier for readings and insight into the writing practice that was the background for this book.
The day has finally arrived and as the newly minted Crow Museum of Asian Art we will be offering wellness classes, performances, and art-making and tours—including the Dallas premiere of JACOB HASHIMOTO Clouds and Chaos. Stop by our new Pearl Art Studio, located across the street, for art-making and meet a monk around the community mandala designed by a local artist. In the museum, experience wellness classes throughout the galleries and spend some time watching the Tibetan monks create a sand mandala underneath a brand new installation by Japanese-American artist Jacob Hashimoto. No day at the Crow would be complete without a visit to our newly designed museum gift shop, the Lotus Shop.
The Crow Museum of Asian Art will celebrate its 2nd annual Jade Ball Gala on November 3, 2018.
We anticipate close to 400 guests for this black-tie evening of dinner, exhibition viewing, and entertainment. This year’s gala celebrates THE CROW AT 20, honoring 20 years of diverse cultural exhibitions and programs and educational outreach to the community. Newly branded as the Crow MUSEUM of Asian Art, this name change reflects the institution’s forward commitment to sharing the collection to the city now and for future generations. The updated and expanded galleries will offer more space to attract international exhibitions and showcase the permanent collection. The Pearl Art Studio is dedicated year-round to art-making, workshops, and community collaborations for participants of all ages and backgrounds.
Generous donors to the silent auction not only support the Crow’s mission to love and celebrate the arts and cultures of Asia, but also contribute to the fun and excitement of the evening. Guests will have the opportunity to outbid others in a spirited race to win coveted items and experience packages, and most importantly help to raise funds supporting the Museum’s many education initiatives that reach out to more than 40,000 school-age children every year. In addition, silent auction donors will enjoy logo and name recognition in the evening program, website, and throughout the evening.
