Dame Jillian Sackler International Artists Exhibition Program

Dame Jillian Sackler International Artists Exhibition Program was established to bring talented international artists to the Sackler Museum at Beida. Artwork for this program must have cultural value in order to create an open dialogue between the work and the viewer. It is our mission to have exhibitions that are informative, exciting, interactive and most of all thought-provoking. The aim of this program is to create cross-cultural understanding and promote lasting relationships between peoples by bringing works by artists from diverse backgrounds to China. Arthur M.

Arthur M. Sackler Colloquia of the National Academy of Sciences

The Arthur M. Sackler Colloquia address scientific topics of broad and current interest that cut across the boundaries of traditional disciplines. Each year, three to four colloquia are scheduled, typically two days in length and international in scope. Each colloquium is organized by a member of the NAS, often with the assistance of an organizing committee, and feature presentations by leading scientists in the field and discussions among one hundred or more researchers with an interest in the topic. Colloquia are held at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center in Irvine, California. One colloquia each year is held at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. and includes the Annual Sackler Public Lecture.
