LACMA | Private Art Tour with Curator Robert T. Singer

We had the privilege of being one of 10 guests invited on a private tour with Robert T. Singer, Curator of Japanese art at LACMA and one of the world’s foremost authorities on this subject.

He took us into the vaults below the museum exhibits and gave us a personal look at some of the new treasures acquired by LACMA that have yet to be seen by the general public.

Robert T. Singer was an articulate man who spends much of his time in Japan scouring the art world for pieces he presents to the board of directors and donors in hopes of bringing them back to Los Angeles to display at LACMA.

Of particular interest to us was the textiles and processes that have been used in Japanese art for centuries, many of which have been mimicked in fashion.
