Curator One-on-One

Curator On-on-One appointments are currently on hold until 2021. Please check back in January for a link to sign up for an appointment.

Curator One-on-One is a fun and educational opportunity for Jade Circle, Jade Circle Gold, and Nexus members. Bring objects from your collection and meet with a curator who will identify, date, attribute, and give historical and stylistic knowledge about the objects. If you have questions about the care of your objects, additional information can be provided from a conservator.

Members are allowed one appointment a year to meet with our curators. Consultations will last approximately 20 minutes.

  • Qualifying members may bring up to 3 objects.
  • Japanese objects are only seen in the afternoon; however, they may be seen in combination with objects from other countries.
  • No information about the objects will be provided in writing.
  • Monetary value of the objects will not be assessed.
  • Artwork must be returned home or to a secure location post-consultation if you are planning to visit the museum.

For any questions, please contact the Jade Circle concierge line at 415.581.3794 or
