November 16, 2023 @ 7:30 am - January 4, 2024 @ 5:00 pm
In the Niche:
This exhibition features traditional crafts of Japan. While most of the objects on view were made in the postwar period, they show the vibrant designs and exceptional craftsmanship practiced by Japanese artisans for centuries. Many of the objects are toys or household items, which can be endowed with supernatural powers of protection and serve as good luck charms. Among the featured crafts are woodturning, wood carving, woodblock prints, painting, paper constructions, papier mâché, lacquerware, ceramics, and various textile arts.
The Niche is in Founders Hall across from the Registrar’s Office. Hours: Monday through Thursday 7:30 a.m.–5 p.m.; Fridays 8 a.m.–4 p.m.
