Scripps is fortunate to have a large teaching collection of artworks from Asia, including over 2500 Japanese prints, more than 150 Ming and Qing Dynasty Chinese paintings, an extensive Asian textile collection, an East Asian cloisonné collection, and more than 100 Chinese bronze mirrors. These works are regularly shown in classes and used in student curated exhibitions on campus. An exhibition in September to October 2019 at the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery will highlight some of the best examples, including 7th–8th century Tang Dynasty mirrors, 14th–16th century Chinese paintings, and 19th–20th century Japanese cloisonné. Professor Bruce Coats will be surveying and commenting on the selections.
