Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 22 2017
Edo Japan (a term describing the country's stable, economically healthy period between 1603 and 1868) saw a surge in urban cultural and artistic life, and art from the era responded with lovely depictions of townspeople and courtesans letting loose at festivals, enjoying the cherry bloom season, and generally indulging in lowercase-h hedonism. This exhibit highlights works from this period that celebrate the common people and their joys.
