Description

From the Gallery's Facebook page:

The Smithsonian Institution has two museums of Asian art: the Freer Gallery of Art which opened to the public in 1923, and the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, which welcomed its first visitors in 1987.

Both are physically connected by an underground passageway, and ideologically linked through the study, exhibition, and sheer love of Asian art. Collections feature ancient to contemporary masterpieces and exhibitions of works from Japan, China, Korea, Southeast Asia, India, and the Near East.

In addition, the Freer Gallery contains an important collection of 19th century American art punctuated by James McNeill Whistler's Peacock Room, perhaps one of the earliest (and certainly one of the most controversial) art installations on record.
