The Allen Memorial Art Museum hosted the opening “First Thursday” event of the academic year yesterday. This month’s event offered an evening of Chinese classical music performed on the guzheng by Ohio Heritage Fellow Weichih Rosa Lee. The performance complements the exhibition of Chinese paintings currently on view at the museum. “We haven’t had classical Chinese music at the AMAM in a long time, so this is a special treat,” Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art Kevin Greenwood wrote in an email to the Review.
