For the Harn Museum of Art Visit

Situated in the UF Cultural Plaza in the southwest of the campus, the Harn Museum of Art is one of the largest university art museums in southeast America. With more than 3,600 works, the Harn’s Asian art collection spans from the Neolithic period through cutting-edge contemporary art. It covers a vast geographic distribution, from central Asia in the west to Japan in the east, and from China in the north to the southernmost points of India and Southeast Asia. The Asian Wing at the Museum features seven exhibitions highlighting Asian ceramics, Chinese jade carvings, south Asian stone sculptures, paintings, and prints. The variety and quality of the works provide the opportunity to explore regional and transnational trends in Asian art, ranging from ceramic traditions to the spread of Buddhism to the relationships between Asia and the West via artistic visions and creations.
