Freer and Sackler public programs illuminate where Asia meets America. We aim to stimulate curiosity about Asian art, transform perceptions, and generate empathy across cultures. We invite visitors of all ages to share stories, celebrate differences, and spark new connections.

All Smithsonian museums continue to be closed to support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. We are not announcing a re-opening date at this time and will provide updates on a regular and as needed basis.

While our spaces are closed and our on-site programs and events are canceled/postponed, we invite you to join us for virtual programs. The events listed below will be conducted online through virtual platforms.
