Delve into the arts of the Far East and Pacific regions

Ranging from Chinese Tang dynasty tomb figurines to prints by contemporary Australian Aboriginal artists, Carleton’s Asian and South Pacific art collection encompasses a significant arc of history and culture. The collection also includes Japanese prints, Chinese and Korean ceramics, and Buddhist devotional objects.

Generous donations from Dr. Percy Watson, a medical missionary and Carleton graduate (class of 1903), make up a significant group of Chinese and Korean artifacts.  

Many objects have been acquired through Carleton’s academic programs and projects.
