Tuesday Tea at the Allen Art Museum


October 19, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm | Allen Memorial Art Museum

Short Description: A presentation from Kevin R.E. Greenwood, Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, on a new exhibition of Japanese prints.

Extended Description: Although today we may think of living sustainably and achieving carbon neutrality as requiring high-tech solutions, in Japan of the Edo period (1603–1868) a culture of sustainability was achieved in a pre-industrial setting with a high population and limited resources. Popular woodblock prints from the era provide a window into this world, and how current ideals like "reduce-reuse-recycle" were put into practice over two centuries ago. Join Kevin R. E. Greenwood, the AMAM's Joan L. Danforth Curator of Asian Art, for a discussion of his current exhibition Green Japan: Images of Sustainable Living in Ukiyo-e Prints. | This is a hybrid event. The in-person portion will take place in Stern Gallery West.
