Saint Louis Art Museum to Offer Chinese Audio Tours for Ming Exhibition
SAINT LOUIS, MO.- The Saint Louis Art Museum will provide audio tours in Mandarin Chinese for the upcoming exhibition, Power and Glory: Court Arts of China's Ming Dynasty, the first exhibition of its kind to focus on the art from China's Ming dynasty (1368–1644).

As part of the iPod audio tour, visitors will have the option of listening to six sections in Mandarin Chinese. "Whether you are fluent in the language or would just like to listen to get a taste of what Mandarin sounds like, the iPod multimedia tour will add another dimension to the exhibit," said Philip Hu, associate curator of Asian art at the Museum.

Curated at the Saint Louis Art Museum by Hu, the exhibition opens February 22 and will be on view in the Museum's Main Exhibition Galleries through May 17, 2009.

Admission to Power and Glory includes an iPod multimedia tour for visitors 12 and older. The iPod tour is $3 on Fridays when the exhibition is free and free to members every day.

Featuring more than 125 magnificent works including porcelain, paintings, textiles, lacquerware, jade and precious metals, this groundbreaking exhibition explores the grandeur and opulence of one of the most important dynasties in Chinese history. The objects include not only artifacts made by imperial manufacturers but also paintings created by emperors and other high-ranking officials. Many are on view for the first time outside of China.

Works in the exhibition are drawn from three of China's most prestigious institutions—the Palace Museum, Beijing; the Nanjing Municipal Museum; and the Shanghai Museum—along with objects from the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco.
