Follow THE TIGER HUNTER with a feast for the senses at our Opening Night Gala at the Asian Art Museum! Dine, drink, dance and discuss as you indulge in what CAAM does best — art, music and food.

Enjoy performances from Chitresh Das Institute, known for presenting innovative Indian classical dance and music. Sway to the sweet sounds of the 70s, with pulsing beats from local DJ’s and soak in the visual riches of the museum’s newest exhibits, Tomb Treasures: New Discoveries from China’s Han Dynasty. Glimpse the secret lives of Han-dynasty royals and the pleasures they pursued in this world and the next through fascinating objects — including a toilet and bronze phallus that are over 2,000 years old — unearthed from newly discovered tombs.
