Art historian Philip K. Hu will give a lecture titled “No
Stone Left Unturned: Mi Wanzhong (1570-1628) and the Culture of Rocks in Late
Ming China” on Thursday, Oct. 2, at 1:35 p.m. in Arts 215 at Union College.
The talk, free and open to the public, is sponsored by Union's Department of Visual Arts and the
East Asian Studies program.
Hu, formerly a research fellow at Dumbarton Oaks and now at
the Art Department at Macalester College, St. Paul, Minn., will discuss the fascination that
collector, painter, and tastemaker Mi Wanzhong held for the twisted and
perforated garden rocks of China.
