The Sackler Gallery is gearing up to open a new exhibition called Gods of Angkor: Bronzes from the National Museum of Cambodia on May 15th.  The exhibit will be featuring 36-plus examples of bronze castings, ranging from the prehistoric period all the through the post-Angkorian period (which, if you don’t know what this means – like I didn’t, it references third century BCE to to sixteenth century CE). The exhibition will continue till January 23 and is the result of an ongoing partnership between the Freer and Sackler Galleries and the National Museum of Cambodia.

So if you want to check out art from Cambodia, and save yourself a super long plane ride – this would be the perfect exhibit for you.

Samantha can often be found daydreaming by the Rothkos of the East Gallery, sketching store facades along 14th, and snapping photos with her vintage polaroid at 9:30 club concerts. Since moving to DC in 2007 to get an MFA in Interior Design, her eyes can’t seem to be peeled away from the beautiful things in this city.
