Bridge to Understanding, commemorating the opening of the new Asian Art Museum in the spring of 2003, is a comprehensive introduction to the museum and its collections. The book traces the history of both the museum and its new home, the former main public library in San Francisco's Civic Center; discusses architect Gae Aulenti's transformation of the dark, gloomy library into a bright, dynamic modern museum; and leads the reader on a unique exploration of the galleries, featuring room-by-room discussions of some of the museum's most intriguing (and until now most seldom displayed) works, presented here in high-quality, full-color, full-page reproductions.
