Exhibiting works of art from Japan, China, India and Southeast Asia, the Crow Collection of Asian Art
offers visitors a peaceful world of beauty and spirituality in the heart of the city. Because many objects
now considered "art" were created for religious purposes, many of the pieces in the permanent collection
represent deities from various religions including as Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism and Jainism. The works
of art, dating from 3500 B.C. to the early 20th century, include precious jade ornaments from China, delicate
Japanese scrolls and a rarely seen 28-foot by 12-foot sandstone facade of an 18th century Indian residence.
The Crow Collection is nestled as a small jewel in the heart of Dallas - in the downtown bustling and
fast-growing Arts District.
