A Place Dear to Our Hearts

Meet Pauline Eveillard, Jade Circle Member

Pauline Eveillard’s favorite weekend activity is to walk to the Asian Art Museum with her husband and two young children, explore the galleries, and have lunch in the cafe. “The museum is a place dear to our hearts,” she says.

Landing in San Francisco two years before the museum’s 50th anniversary celebration, she was immediately impressed with the museum’s range of programming and diversity of visitors.

“I’m drawn to the museum because it opens its doors and lets everyone in,” Pauline says, noting the Free First Sundays program.

As someone who works with contemporary designers — she is the founder and C.E.O. of the online marketplace Soukra, which connects Tunisian designers with collectors around the world — Pauline is inspired by the way the museum engages with living artists and reinforces connections between historical and contemporary art. 

After several years as a member at the Premium level, Pauline and her husband decided to deepen their commitment to the museum by joining the Jade Circle. “The museum is a part of our lives and we want to support it,” she explains.

Join Pauline in supporting the museum by becoming a Jade Circle member. Enhance your museum experience with insider access to exhibitions, events, and the private donor lounge, as well as special opportunities to connect with curators, museum leaders. and other museum supporters. As a Jade Circle member, you’ll make a meaningful impact on our diverse community, strengthening the museum’s vision of making Asian art and culture essential to everyone.
