The Crow Collection of Asian Art’s GLOBAL LEARNERS PROGRAM uses engagements in the visual arts to develop cognitive empathy and cultural awareness.
Between February and May, 2018, 4th grade students at the William M. Anderson Elementary School learned about Cambodian art and culture through stories, art making, and engaging with a Cambodian sculpture from the museum’s permanent collection.
Join us at the Prairie Creek Branch Library for a reception featuring sculptures made by the students. Light refreshments will be served.
This event offers local artists and art enthusiasts the opportunity to meet each other, create, and collaborate.

New York-based artist and composer Aki Onda will create a site-specific performance inspired by Jacob Hashimoto’s Nuvole installation and the museum’s permanent collection. Using light, sound, and other media, the complex relationship between the concrete and the ephemeral is explored. Featuring Queens-based vocal artist Samita Sinha.
This exclusive performance is co-commissioned by the Crow Museum of Asian Art and the Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Family SOLUNA International Music & Arts Festival.
About the Artists:
Aki Onda is a New York-based artist and composer. He is particularly known for his “Cassette Memories” — works compiled from a “sound diary” of field-recordings collected by using the cassette Walkman over a span of last quarter-century. He creates compositions, performances, and visual artworks from those sound memories. Onda often performs in interdisciplinary fields and collaborates with filmmakers, visual artists, and choreographers, including Ken Jacobs, Michael Snow, Raha Raissnia, Akio Suzuki, and Takao Kawaguchi. Onda’s work has been presented numerous institutions such as MoMA, The Kitchen, documenta 14, Pompidou Center, Louvre Museum, Palais de Tokyo, Bozar, and many others.
Samita Sinha combines tradition and experiment to compose vocal performance works that investigate cultural inheritance and the experience of being a body in the world. Works include This ember state (2018, commissioned by Asia Society), bewilderment and other queer lions (2016, commissioned by Performance Space 122 and Invisible Dog Art Center for COIL Festival) and Cipher (2014-15), a solo work that toured nationally. She has composed and performed original scores for dance and theater works by Dean Moss, Fiona Templeton, and Preeti Vasudevan, vocal directed for Daria Fain and Robert Kocik, and performed with Sekou Sundiata and Robert Ashley. Sinha teaches voice extensively, including at the Rubin Museum of Art, Centro Nacional de las Artes (Mexico City), Swarthmore College and Womankind (formerly New York Asian Women’s Center).
