The final lecture in our Nickerson Series for 2015 discusses how prominent Americans traveled to Asia and discovered their passion for collecting Asian Art.  Including how they go about their lives and living with their collections, which can be seen in public today.

This lecture is part of the Driehaus Museum’s 2015 Samuel M. Nickerson Lecture Series, a program which serves to situate the Nickerson Mansion within the context of social artistic developments of the period and against the wider background of America’s Gilded Age.

Doors open at 5 p.m. for any attendees who would like to explore the Museum and its collections. The lecture begins at 6 p.m. As space is limited, advance reservations are highly recommended.
