Qudsia Zohab named Brayton Wilbur Jr. Memorial Fellow

Program Year: 2013

As a follow-on to the program for Mr. Omara Masoudi, Director of the National Museum in 2012, the Asia Foundation arranged a one-week internship for Ms. Qudsia Zohab, Head of the Ethnography Department, at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya Museum (CSMVS) in Mumbai, India, where she studied textile conservation and restoration practices.

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.
