Inaugural Brayton Wilbur Jr. Memorial Fellows

Program Year: 2010

In December, 2009, Dr. Forrest McGill, the Asian Art Museum’s Chief Curator and Wattis Curator of South and Southeast Asian Art, and Dr. Qamar Adamjee, Associate Curator, visited India to re-connect with directors of that nation’s most prominent museums. They also identified subsequent recipients of the Brayton Wilbur, Jr. fellowship from India to the U.S.

Asia Foundation Trustee Judith Wilbur generously established a fellowship in Asian Art in honor of her late husband and former Trustee, Brayton Wilbur, Jr. The fellowship stems from the Wilburs’ deep interest in Asian art, nurtured through their residence and travel in the region, and their commitment to the work of The Asia Foundation and the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco (AAM). The two institutions are collaborating in the program’s execution, with AAM identifying qualified fellowship recipients, and The Asia Foundation’s Asian American Exchange unit responsible for overall administration.
