SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- On Saturday February 27 and 4PM Pacific Standard Time, the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco will be, vicariously, conducting our readers in a tour to Asia, in its second ART ESCAPES  Virtual tour  in which WATTIS  Senior Curator of South and Southeast Asian Art  Dr. Forest McGill will take us through the Museum's galleries for an up-close look at Buddhist and Hindu sculptures, Swaying bodies, palms extended elegantly, chins nodding to the beat of an unheard rhythm in what it is known as the immortal, sacred movement, and define sculpture across Southern Asia and the Himalayas.

The tour will show the tourists and discuss, among other things, the larger than life temple reliefs and the bronzes created for ceremonial parades. Dr. McGill's talk will also discuss how artists, for millennia, have shown us the vital connections between sculpture, life, and the spirit.
