An exhibition four years in the making is being prepared at the Field Museum as curators unpack over 100 crates filled with objects from the Forbidden City in Beijing, China. Many of these works have never been seen before outside of China. The Splendors of China’s Forbidden City: The Glorious Reign of Emperor Qianlong opens March 12. Read the full story at ABC7Chicago.
