Kimono, netsuke, swords, lacquerware, screens and scrolls. Come explore the variety, complexity and beauty of Japanese art.  For the Japanese, the functionality of an object was not enough; it also had to be aesthetically pleasing and display the skill of the artisan, the taste of the patron and the values of the culture. Luxuriate in this fascinating program highlighting some of the exquisite objects in the Japanese collection of the Asian Art Museum. This is a co-sponsored program by the Asian Art Museum Community Speakers Program.
