About this Event
271 Columbia Avenue, Holland, MI 49423-3650
Shank’s Mare Tokaido: Misadventures Along the Eastern Sea Road takes its title from a famous 19th-century Japanese novel which is about two friends who travel from town to town along the famous Tokaido Road that once ran along the eastern coast of Japan, connecting the cities of Tokyo and Kyoto. The exhibition will feature a suite of 60 Japanese woodblock prints depicting scenes of many of the humorous adventures and mishaps the two friends experience among the places and people they encounter along the Tokaido Road. The exhibition will also include six earlier original woodblock prints of the Tokaido by Utagawa Hiroshige, along with paintings, photographs, clothing, household wares and other items that shed additional light on the people, places and things portrayed in the Tokaido images.
