"Legacy of Beauty"

When: Tuesdays, Fridays, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Continues through Jan. 4 2015

Highlighting the San Antonio Museum of Art’s extensive collection of Chinese ceramics as well as the discerning taste of collector Walter F. Brown, “Legacy of Beauty” features 45 of the 700-plus works of art Brown and his wife Lenora gifted the museum. Billed as “a journey through 2,000 years of Chinese ceramics,” the exhibition comprises pieces from the Han, Tang, Liao, Ming and Qing dynasties. Adding a layer of intrigue, the intricate patterns and scenes adorning ceramic and porcelain vessels from Imperial China are often imbued with symbolic wishes and rebuses riddled with homonyms.

Price: $5-$10
