"The Asia Society is America's leading institution dedicated to fostering understanding of Asia and communication between Americans and the peoples of Asia and the Pacific."
To meet the increasing demand for greater awareness and understanding of Asia and its dynamic relationship with America, the Asia Society has undergone an extensive renovation and expansion of its world headquarters in New York City. The $30 million initiative has substantially enhanced the Asia Society's museum galleries, as well as its public facilities and programs, and has strengthened the Society's role as the only institution in North America addressing the intersection of the arts, economics, politics, and society throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
The project has built on the Society's more than forty-year record of leadership as a forum for cross-cultural exchange between artists, educators, performers, government officials, Asian-American community leaders, business executives, students, and the public on both sides of the Pacific.
