The Toledo Museum of Art has a free upcoming exhibition on Japanese art. From October 4 to January 1, 2014, the TMA is proud to offer Fresh Impressions: Early Modern Japanese Prints, which will feature an exquisite collection of 343 woodblock prints in pristine condition. The prints reflect the shin hanga or “new print” movement of the early 1900s that combined traditional technique with Western inspiration, and will be shown alongside kimonos, Kabuki costumes, samurai swords and other objects similar to those depicted in the prints. Admission to the exhibition is free.
The exhibition debuts with a free opening night party on Thursday, October 3 from 7 to 9 p.m., with music, hands-on activities, a cash bar, and access to an award-winning gourmet café until 8 p.m. I hope you will join us!
