Description

Celebrate the opening night of our spring exhibition, A Giant Leap: The Transformation of Hasegawa Tōhaku, while enjoying complimentary snacks, music, and drink specials.


About A Giant Leap: The Transformation of Hasegawa Tōhaku:

Commemorating Japan Society's 110th Anniversary, this special exhibition celebrates the life and legacy of Hasegawa Tōhaku (1539-1610), one of Japan's leading artistic innovators. With vibrantly painted screens and scrolls, A Giant Leap traces the artist's evolution from a painter of provincial origins to a master favored by shogun, samurai and other cultural luminaries. For the first time in the U.S., visitors will be able to experience Tōhaku's most celebrated works in a single space, including Important Cultural Properties. Owing to their rarity and in order to preserve their remarkable condition, paintings will be displayed in two beautiful rotations.


Must be 21+ to drink alcohol.
