Another Story of an Olympian: Building a Japanese Art Collection


[Gallery Lecture] March 17, 11 AM

American collector Avery Brundage's gifts to the city of San Francisco led to the establishment of the Asian Art Museum, while his tenure as head of the International Olympic Committee from 1952 to 1972 positioned him to have a profound influence on U.S.-Japan relations in the postwar era. Robert Mintz, Deputy Director, Arts and Programs, Asian Art Museum San Francisco, explores how Brundage used Japanese art to facilitate the U.S.-Japan relationship and to express his deep-seated belief in the potential for art to impact the world.
