Join us for an evening at the VFMA to see the famous Chinese Terracotta Army.

The exhibition features ten figures from the First Emperor of China’s underground army of nearly 8,000 life-size terracotta soldiers. Discovered buried in 1974 one mile from the Emperor's burial site, the figures are thought to be the greatest archaeological finds of the 20th century. An additional 130 works are included in the exhibit that share the story of China’s First Emperor, Qin Shihuang. The artifacts date from the Eastern Zhou dynasty through the Qin dynasty and represent the complex history, myths, and burial customs of ancient China.

After the exhibition, relax and join your fellow Alumni upstairs at the Amuse Restaurant for appetizers and a cash bar.

Refund deadline is January 19, 2018.
