About the Exhibition
Artists have been deeply influenced by nature for centuries, and perhaps nowhere more so than in Asia. Drawn from Nature brings together a group of contemporary artists for whom nature plays a pivotal role in the inspiration for, and execution of, their artworks. Sopheap Pich, Mineko Grimmer, and Palden Weinreb, artists featured in Asia Society Texas Center’s first-ever exhibition dedicated to nature, allow visitors to see its continuing impact in a contemporary context.
Education and outreach programs at Asia Society Texas Center are made possible through generous funding from the George and Mary Josephine Hamman Foundation and Nieman Marcus. Additional support provided by the Friends of Education & Outreach at Asia Society Texas Center.
