Asian art show

The 1876 Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia was the event at which most Americans first had direct contact with Asian art. Large-scale vases, elaborate bronzes and delicate lacquerware from China, Japan and other eastern countries were all on view. Starting today, 125 years to the day of the opening of the Centennial Exhibition, approximately 50 works of art associated with the exhibition will be on view when "West Meets East: China and Japan at the Centennial Exhibition" opens at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

The museum is located at Benjamin Franklin Parkway at 26th Street. Hours vary. Admission is $5 and $8, free until 1 p.m. Sundays. Call 215-763-8100.
