From Beyond the Stars: Innovation and Inspiration in Meiji Japanese Art; Public Opening Reception

Friday, September 8, 2017 at 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Kruizenga Art Museum 271 Columbia Avenue, Holland, MI 49423-3650

The exhibit explores some of the major new developments that occurred in Japanese art during the Meiji period (1868-1912) and reveals how art contributed to the larger political, social and economic changes that transformed Japan into a modern world power at that time.

The exhibit features 66 works of art spanning a wide range of media, from paintings, prints and photographs to ceramics, enamels, metalworks and textiles. The artworks come from the Kruizenga Art Museum collection and a consortium of private collections in California. The exhibit will be on display through December 16, 2017.

The opening reception will be preceded by a lecture from Japanese art expert Joe Earle. Both the lecture and reception are free and open to the public.
