Edo Pop: The Graphic Impact of Japanese Prints

October 30, 2011–January 8, 2012

The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is opening a new exhibit featuring Japanese art. My mother has Japanese art pieces in her home and I have developed both a strong interest and appreciation for this style.

The MIA website states: “The exhibition showcases 160 of the MIA’s best prints by the genre’s greatest artists, including Harunobu, Kiyonaga, Utamaro, Shunsho, Sharaku, Toyokuni, Hokusai, and Hiroshige. With their crisp outlines, unmodulated colors, and surprising vantage points, the images are as fresh and captivating as when they were produced.” This is sure to be a wonderful exhibit.

Non-members of the museum will be charged admission. If you’re not a member, you can take advantage of a limited time offer to purchase a ticket for $1:
