About us

Mission: The Friends of Asian Art Association provides and supports programs and activities that reflect the arts of countries, regions and cultures that make up the broad and diverse spectrum of Asia.

Vision: Through its activities, the Friends of Asian Art Association seeks to advance local, regional, national and international understanding and appreciation of Asian arts to the communities it serves.

The Friends of Asian Art Association (FA3) was established in 2010 as community group committed to providing information to those interested in Asian art. In July 2011, the association was formalized as a nonprofit organization.

FA3 supports the many past, present and emerging art forms from the countries, regions and cultures that make up the broad and diverse spectrum of Asia. All ancient, traditional and modern art forms, whether fine or folk arts and crafts, are included as areas of artistic interest: visual, performing, literary, architecture, decorative, applied, conceptual, design, cinema, photography, gastronomy and more!

FA3 is a 501C3 all-volunteer organization that provides information on local, national and international Asian events, activities, exhibits, resources, opportunities and travel opportunities to its members. A variety of Friends-sponsored programs – open to members and the general public – are offered throughout the year. Join Us
