Each fall the Freer and Sackler Galleries publish, with the University of Michigan, a journal of the latest research in art of the Middle East and Asia. Titled Ars Orientalis, the journal is a collection of scholarship that crosses academic disciplines and aims to connect researchers, institutions, and ideas using one central theme per volume.
Volume 46: The Performative Agency of Buddhist Art and Architecture in Asia
We are excited to reopen the Freer in October 2017, following a renovation
to allow us to better present our art and serve our visitors. The Sackler remains open, with a full lineup of exhibitions
both in the museum and around DC. For your safety, all visitors will have their bags checked. See the complete list of restricted items and bag sizes
