Channeling Immortality: Chinese Scholars’ Rocks

March 22, 2018 - May 6, 2018

For centuries, Chinese scholars have believed that cosmic energy coalesces into fantastic-looking rocks, and that longevity and quietude are achieved through the love of such rocks. Large enough to be displayed in gardens or small enough to be set on a desk, this exhibition features striking examples of these rocks as well as paintings and other related works of art.

Organized by the Norton Museum of Art.
