This exhibition presents approximately 150 works in various media from medieval times to the present. Highlights include a unique, early seventeenth-century pair of ink-painted screens showing a flock of 120 mynah birds in flight or strutting on the shore; and a set of four enormous paintings of birds of prey by the nineteenth-century master Kawanabe Kyōsai, each over nine feet high. Displays of paintings will be juxtaposed with examples of modern and contemporary textiles, ceramics, lacquerware, and bamboo art. Drawn mostly from the Museum's own collection, it will also feature some fifteen works on loan from private collections.

Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
