Terracotta Army: Legacy of the First Emperor of China

December 1, 2017 - March 11, 2018

$
Discovered in 1974 by farmers in China, an underground army of nearly 8,000 life-size terracotta figures is regarded as one of the greatest archaeological finds of the 20th century. Gathered from fourteen museums and archaeological institutes across Shaanxi Province, China, the works of Terracotta Army provide insights into Qin history, the creation of a unified China, the First Emperor’s rise to power, and his quest for immortality. More than 40 objects in the exhibition have never before been on view in the United States. ($, Free for members, children 6 and younger, and active-duty military personnel and their immediate families)
