A Late Christmas Gift: Contemporary Prints from Japan

February 1 - March 9, 2012
Tuesday through Sunday, 12:00-4:00 Closed Mondays

Imagine a box of all kinds of ornaments that come to light up the snows of February. These 45 little images are a late-arriving Christmas gift from the contemporary print culture of Japan -- from playful to reflective, from abstract to realist, from symbolic to descriptive – together they are a charming and effective cure for the mid-winter blues.
