AAA Editor Notes
Belz Museum of Asian and Judaic Art is at 119 S. Main St. in the Pembroke Sq. Bldg. Works exemplify 19th-century Chinese art and reflect the opulence of Imperial China during the Qing Dynasty 1644-1911. Many of the elaborate jade sculptures, intricate ivory carvings, period furnishings and textiles have symbolic meanings. Rare minerals, fossils, Russian lacquer boxes and an extensive contemporary Judaic art collection also are showcased. Photographs, testimonials and artifacts from survivors, refugees, and liberators of Holocaust survivors living in Tennessee are on display in the Holocaust Memorial Gallery.
