Join us for the thirteenth season of our Chinese Art & History Group. Our intent for 2014 will be to explore China’s far reaching influence on culture, art, religion, architecture and much more. China was to the countries of East Asia what ancient Greece and Rome were to the countries of Europe; the source of their shared
classical world.

These lunches and discussion sessions to follow will permit the free and open exchange of questions, ideas and observations among study group members and the lecturers. The seven lectures, one movie, and lunches, which will be held at 1010 Fifth Avenue South in Naples, are offered for a registration rate of $345 per person (Chinese New Year luncheon Feb 11, 2014 is at an additional cost). While the lectures will be open to the public, only members of the Chinese Art & History Study Group will be able to enjoy the private lunches and discussion sessions which follow.
