Fusion Friday (2)

It’s not to early to be thinking about summer and a week from this Friday, 17 May 2013, the Pacific Asia Museum is kicking off its Fusion Fridays with a beautiful Indonesian shadow puppet performance.

Fusion Fridays are all about live performances, meeting people and seeing good art along with good eats. Cocktail and Asian attire are encouraged . DJs will be spinning in the courtyard, you can quench your thirst at the cash bar (Angel City Brewery) and some of L.A.’s best food trucks will be parking in our lot.

Want to enjoy the museum before the crowds? You can purchase a pre-party package and your group can have early entry with happy hour pricing. Contact education@pacificasiamuseum.org for more info.

This Fusion Friday features the Indonesian shadow puppet performance, gamelan music and DJ Arshia with a special Bollywood dance mix.

Current exhibits include the Takashi Tomo-oka exhibit of this contemporary Japanese artist’s photographs on handmade paper mounted on scrolls (closes 28 July 2013), “Focus on the Subject: The Art of the Harari Collection” (closes 30 March 2014), “The Art of Continuity: Revering our Elders” exhibit on the veneration of ancestors and lineages on the arts of Asia and “The Garden in Asia” which looks at the garden as a source of inspiration throughout the centuries.

In addition to the temporary exhibits, you can wander through the permanent exhibits of “The Art of Pacific Asia” and “The Arts of Korea.”
