Two new galleries on the Museum’s first floor, including the relocated Levy Gallery, will enlarge and enhance the display of approximately 160 highlights from the BMA’s Asian art collection. The collection is comprised of more than 1,000 objects from China, Japan, India, Tibet, Southeast Asia, and the Near East.
