Chinese Art Expert to Deliver 9th Annual Miller Lecture

Northampton, Mass.—The Smith College Museum of Art (SCMA) will welcome Sonya S. Lee, an expert on Chinese art and visual culture, speaking on “Time and Nature in the Visual Culture of Tang China” for the 9th Annual Miller Lecture in Art and Art History on Wednesday, Nov. 2.

The event, which is free and open to all in the Smith community and the public, will take place at 7 p.m. in Weinstein Auditorium, Wright Hall.

The Miller Lecture is a distinguished lectureship established in memory of Smith alumna Dulcy Blume Miller ’46. The fund enables the museum to bring a leading artist, art historian, or architect to campus each year to give a public lecture and to take part in classes.

Lee’s lecture is given in conjunction with the current SCMA exhibition "Transcending Boundaries: The Art and Legacy of Tang China," part of the Yale University Art Gallery Collection-Sharing Initiative.

Sonya Lee is an associate professor of Chinese art and visual culture at the University of Southern California, and a Paul Mellon Senior Fellow (2011-2012) studying “Culture and Nature: Cave Temples of Sichuan” at the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
