Art majors Natalie Suarez 09 and Rei Higgins '08, alumni Gary Scarborough '82 and Dawn Dvoracek, Director of Church Relations traveled to Memphis to tour the exceptional exhibits at the Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art.
The Belz Museum is located in Pembroke Square near the Peabody Hotel. Visitors to the museum were amazed at the museum’s hundreds of stunning pieces of art - contemporary Judaic art; geological specimens; and rare examples from the Qing Dynasty - the last great dynasty of ancient China. Also viewed was Cloaked in Symbolism: Clothes and Costumes of the Ch'ing Dynasty, a newest exhibition at the Belz Museum of Asian & Judaic Art. Cloaked in Symbolism explores the significant role of garments in imperial Chinese society. The exhibit features over thirty items from the Belz collection including Chinese theater costumes, imperial court robes, rank badges, and accessories.
The four spent the evening at the historic Opera Memphis which presented Turandot by Giacomo Puccini to a full house.
