From the Asian Art Museum website:
Imperial leader. Fearsome tyrant. Military genius. Avid anti-intellectual. Obsessive star-gazer. Enduring mystery.
The First Emperor, Qin Shihuang [masked] BCE) was all these things and more. His storied legacy is rich with enduring achievements, including the unification of China under centralized imperial rule, brilliant military systems and advanced engineering and assembly production. He is also reputed to have burned scores of books, buried scholars alive and achieved widespread domination through devastating bloodshed.

The First Emperor conquered much in this life, but his driving purpose was even greater: He sought to conquer death. In order to achieve immortality, he built himself a tomb—a vast underground city guarded by a life-size terracotta army including warriors, infantrymen, horses, chariots and all their attendant armor and weaponry.

First unearthed in 1974, the underground burial complex of the First Emperor is a revelation for the ages, an astonishing discovery on par with Egypt’s mummies and elaborate tombs. Contemporary observers continue to be enthralled by his legacy, and it is through this ongoing interest that the First Emperor did indeed achieve immortality. This exhibition includes ten figures—a representative sample of the actual army, which is estimated to include more than 7,000 life-sized figures and over 10,000 weapons.

    Sorry I won't be able to go to the asian art museum. Someone take my spot! Also, that means that Lebeauviolet has an extra ticket.

    Can't make it after all.

    I've checked with the museum and they do not foresee tickets selling out. So, you don't have to buy tickets until we get there. One advantage is if one of the free ticket members drops out, you'll be able to take advantage of it. But I can't guarantee tickets won't sell out.

    Please see updated info on buying tickets. Those assigned the 5 free tickets do not need to buy tickets. All others must buy tickets on their own.

    This looks fun! Unfortunately, I'm not sure if I'll be available. If it does fill-up before I know for sure, I'll have to try and make it to this on my own.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
