This exhibit opens February 11, 2017 at the Cincinnati Art Museum:
The Cincinnati Art Museum’s Howard and Caroline Porter Collection is the largest repository of the woodcuts of Kosaka Gajin outside the family in Tokyo, Japan. This exhibition celebrates his prints capturing the beauty of Japan’s landscape and architectural monuments in a way that is totally modern in its individualized expression, not unlike the era’s action painting in the West. This exhibition of his later woodcuts will be the first solo exhibition of the artist’s work in the United States.
Ticketed – free for members.
Don't forget to put these shows on your calendar:
Experience life in the 1950s by putting your feet up on the couch, playing a record, peeking in drawers and rolling in the grass in a full-size prefabricated Lustron home built inside the museum at the Ohio History Center.
The story of two Iraqi brothers who escaped from Baghdad in early 2002 becomes a vehicle for British-born, NY-based artist Jane Benson to explore the social reverberations caused by geo-cultural separation. The artist uses music to tell the story in a dual-channel video entitled Finding Baghdad (Part A) which serves as the show’s centerpiece.
The 2017 special exhibition season concludes with the Art Nouveau designs of Alphonse Mucha (1860–1939).
The Eiteljorg Museum’s Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure is a journey to the Great American West – the real West and the West of the imagination. The popular locomotive wonderland and Indianapolis family tradition opens Saturday, Nov. 18.
