Summary

Betty Carr presents on Tang Dynasty earthenware ceramics

Description

The San Diego Chinese Historical Museum is partnering with the SDSU Chinese Cultural Center to bring twice-monthly remote educational programming to our community via this series of talks and discussions.  This series offers unique insights into Chinese history, Chinese culture, American history and lifeways of Chinese Americans, with a particular focus on objects represented in the Museum’s permanent collection

On April 3, we will be joined by Betty Carr.  A brief description of her lecture follows:

The Tang dynasty is famous for its brightly colored Sancai, a lead glazed tri-colored earthenware that offers insight on the cross-cultural exchange during the peak of the Silk Road trade. This lecture will also explain why the Tang Dynasty achievements in true porcelain and underglaze painting were crucial to bring Chinese ceramics to the forefront of the world stage.

We will publish a link to the page where attendees should register to attend the presentation in Zoom soon!
