The Bowers Museum has earned an international reputation for presenting exhibitions of the highest caliber. For its reopening in 1992, the Museum presented Tribute to the Gods; Treasures of the Museo del Oro, Bogota, and Porcelains from the Chang Foundation, Taipei. Since that time, the Bowers' special exhibition program has presented more than 60 exhibitions from around the world.
This international exhibition features 120 bronze, jade and gold objects from a highly sophisticated culture. This not-to-be-missed exhibition examines the unique and incomparable finds from the ancient archaeological sites of Sanxingdui and Jinsha.

Drawn from the renowned collections of the Brooklyn Museum, Soulful Creatures features choice examples from among the many millions of mummies of birds, cats, dogs, snakes, and other animals preserved from at least thirty-one different cemeteries throughout Egypt.
