was there to help us navigate these uncharted waters and create vibrant virtual offerings and presence.”
There is a tremendous synergy and commonality between East West Bank’s mission and the museum’s, with our common focus on building bridges between cultures.
Unfortunately, the public health emergency forced the museum to postpone its plans for 2020, including the celebration of the newly transformed facility, which was going to be commemorated with several weeks of programs, events and free Jay Xu, admission. This effort is part of the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco CEO museum’s “For All” campaign— providing a $100 million investment over five years to expand its worldrenowned collections, exhibitions and cultural programs. This includes the addition of the 7,500-square-foot East West Bank Art Terrace—the largest rooftop art terrace in San Francisco. Once open to the public, the terrace will house contemporary installations including the Fountain of Light by Ai Weiwei, Luminous Ground by Ala Ebtekar, Don’t Mess With Me by Jas Charanjiva, Breast Stupa Topiary by Pinaree Sanpitak and special live performances. The East West Bank Art Terrace will also be a place where people of all ages can meet up with friends, enjoy a refreshment with light concessions and participate in evening social events. “There is a tremendous synergy and commonality between East West Bank’s mission and the museum’s, with our common focus on building bridges between cultures,” said Xu. “The Bank’s longtime support and partnership have helped us accomplish so much and continues to support our efforts to make Asian art essential.”
