Event Details

The Walters Art Museum holds over 4,000 objects in their Japanese Collection. From ceramics, to tapestries, to armor, the Japanese collection is a wealth of beauty and history. Explore highlights from this vast collection around the themes of plants, people and events, animals, and religion.

Jan Thorman has been a volunteer docent at the Walters Art Museum for 14 years.  An art history major from Yale University, Jan’s interest in Japanese art was piqued by her docent training and grew through travel in Japan. In addition to her volunteer position at the Walters, she is also Secretary of the National Docent Symposium Council, a North American organization dedicated to continuous improvement in docent practice. 

This event is presented in partnership with The Walters Art Museum.
