Hiroshige ―Rain, Snow, Night

Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) was a master artist of ukiyo-e landscapes at the end of the Edo period. His poetic landscape prints with unique composition and rich colors have long been loved by many Japanese.
His varied landscapes, which allowed people to enjoy the sensation of traveling without leaving home, include landscapes as seen from important routes of the time and pictures of famous places. Not simply pictorial, the landscapes combine a variety of elements such as season, climate, and time of day.
This exhibition presents Hiroshige’s 160 important works, including the whole series of The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido. By introducing the noteworthy features of each work we try to unravel the appeal of Hiroshige’s masterful art.

Keith Haring: Humanism

This exhibition explores Keith Haring’s principle belief, one that rejected the existence of art as solely exclusive to the rich, and celebrates love above racial, religious, and gender differences. In the early 1980’s, Haring began to draw on empty advertising boards in the New York subway system, risking potential arrest for vandalism, all with his own motto and belief in mind—art is for everybody. Over the next five years, this project, entitled Subway Drawings, turned commuters into art viewers, making him the talk of the town. In Kutztown, Pennsylvania, young Keith Haring grew up drawing with his father, and much like everyone else in town, went to church every Sunday.
