Saints and Kings: Arts, Culture, and Legacy of the Sikhs is organized by the Asian Art Museum.
SAN FRANCISCO---Celebrate the artistic and cultural heritage of the Sikhs in "Saints and Kings Arts, Culture, and Legacy" at the Asian Art Museum. With nearly 27 million adherents worldwide, Sikhism is among the world’s largest religions, and also one of the youngest. A diverse selection of 30 paintings, prints and textiles celebrates the artistic and cultural legacy of the Sikhs and the community’s longstanding connection to California. This exhibition explores the artistic and cultural creativity that flourished under the patronage of India’s Sikh kingdoms, established in the 1800s by the dynamic warrior Maharaja Ranjit Singh (1780–1839), which was continued by later Sikh rulers.
