What is your favorite art work? I know you probably have one. At the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco a brown board is located in the main atrium with the question “If I could take one artwork home I’d pick ______ because_____.” Visitors are invited to write down their favorite work and explain their reasoning. My favorite in the Asian Art Museum is Boat by Zhu Jinshi. This installation is created with Xuan paper [calligraphy paper], bamboo and cotton thread. Walking through this work, the Chinese calligraphy paper creates an calm atmosphere, one perfect for relaxation.
