This exhibition of historical and contemporary ink painting in America reminds us that Asian culture has important international expressions.

It is co-organized by the Fine Arts Gallery with CCCArts of the Chinese Culture Foundation, in association with the Asian Art Museum and Silicon Valley Asian Art Center. The exhibition will be presented at all venues before traveling to China.

This project is made possible by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and Terra Foundation for American Art.
