Save Event: Arts of Japan

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


This fall, we unveil a new gallery for our Arts of Japan collection following a multiyear renovation.


 In this inaugural installation, seventy objects from our collection illustrate the sophistication of Japanese art-making technologies and explore the dialogue between tradition and innovation in Japan. Featuring masterworks of Buddhist sculpture, vivid Ukiyo-e prints, exquisite screen paintings, and cutting-edge contemporary ceramics, the gallery highlights two thousand years of artistic achievement. In acknowledgement of the cultural diversity within the region, the installation also includes highlights from our important collection of artifacts from the Ainu people of northern Japan, material that is rarely shown in an art museum setting
