KMA Travels: China

May 1-16, 2009

The Museum has a reputation for its well-organized travels, both regional and international. Our May 2009 trip will be a cultural tour of China, beginning in Beijing, where the new and the old combine. Beijing is one of the world’s hottest contemporary art cities, but it is also the Forbidden City, the epicenter of ancient Imperial Power. No trip to China is complete without a visit to the Great Wall and to the Qin dynasty’s famous Terra Cotta Warriors. We’ll also see cutting-edge art at the Ulens Center of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Modern Art, and the photography center, all located in Shanghai. Trace China’s history from ancient dynasties to the present through mosques, murals, and museums when we visit Beijing, Dunhuang, Xi’an, Guilian, and Shanghai. As with all our international expeditions, new surprises will emerge as you travel!
