Art in the US-Japan Relationship: Preserving the Floating World

April 16, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Please join us at 6 p.m., Tuesday, April 16, for a special presentation of Japanese art as part of the Richard J. Wood Art Curators Series. The series brings attention to major collections of Japanese art in the U.S. and their role in the U.S.-Japan grassroots relationship.

Beyond his fame as the Pulitzer-Prize-winning author of “Tales of the South Pacific” and “Hawaii,” James A. Michener was an enthusiastic collector of fine art. He managed to assemble the third largest collection of ukiyo-e in the United States, which he donated to the Honolulu Museum of Art. Join us at The Maridon Museum to learn about Michener’s collecting journey with Stephen Salel, curator of Japanese Art at the University of Honolulu.
