Ringling Center for Asian Art Renamed for Chao Foundation



The John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art and Florida State University have announced a new leadership gift to The Ringling from the Ting Tsung and Wei Fong Chao Foundation, which combined with existing support from the foundation, will establish the Ting Tsung and Wei Fong Chao Center for Asian Art, including an endowment for the acquisition, exhibition and programs of Asian art in perpetuity. The gift represents progress toward The Ringling Inspires: Honoring the Legacy and Building for the Future, the current $100 million comprehensive campaign, and FSU’s $1 billion Raise the Torch campaign. The Texas-based foundation’s previous gifts to The Ringling include funds for the Ting Tsung and Wei Fong Chao Lecture Hall, a 125-seat preeminent programming space in The Ringling’s Center for Asian Art; the Ting Tsung and Wei Fong Chao Foundation Gallery, as well as support for the care, storage and exhibition of the institution’s growing Asian art collections.
