Founded by avid art collector, Brian S. McElney, the Museum of East Asian Art is symbolic of East and Southeast Asian heritage. The wonders of the Eastern world are preserved in the Georgian house and dates back to 5000 BC through the 20th Century. On the first floor of are Japanese and Korean jade and stone carvings, as well as a large room devoted to bronze and other metallic arts. The Chinese Scholar's Studio hidden in the back is easily missed, but well worth seeking out. The second floor gallery features ceramics, sculptures and bamboo carvings. Helpful displays assist you in understanding the significance of the art-forms in Asian culture. Around every corner something will catch your eye; look out for Chinese and Japanese lacquer and prints of traditional figures.
