The Freeman Foundation Asian Culture Exhibit Series
The Freeman Foundation Asian Culture Exhibit Series is a multi-year initiative that will promote Asian cultural understanding in U.S. children. The initiative is made possible through the generous support of The Freeman Foundation. Association of Children’s Museums (ACM) serves as the administrator of the initiative.
The exhibit series will result in five traveling exhibits, each focused on at least one East or Southeast Asian culture, representing the countries of China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam. Each exhibit will be designed by a U.S. children’s museum and will subsequently travel to a minimum of eight additional children’s museums—at least forty venues total—reaching more than two million visitors. The exhibits will begin opening in November 2014 on a staggered basis at the producing museums and then will begin touring at host museums in June 2015.
In addition, an Asia Mobile App will be created to build on and extend the exhibit experiences and connect all visitors with a broader realm of resources for exploring Asian cultures. Read the press release.
