      Dear Art Educators,

      This new on line exhibit was reviewed in today's Scout Report.
      Facing East: Portraits from Asia:

      (Click on the link to online presentation at the right)

      "'Facing East: Portraits from Asia,' on view July 1 through September
      4 at the Smithsonian's Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, explores how
      portraits expressed identity in Asia and the Near East. Paintings,
      sculpture, and photographs of Egyptian pharaohs, Chinese empresses,
      Japanese actors and a host of other subjects, reveal the unique ways
      that the self was understood, represented, and projected in Asian
      art." (copied from web site)

      "In Asia, artists created portraits to proclaim power or status, to
      remember the dead or their achievements, to recall the beloved, and to
      strengthen bonds between friends" (copied from online exhibit)

      Regards,

      Judy Decker
