Images from the Exhibit

Red is a color that surrounds us in our daily lives, but have you ever thought about what it means? In ancient Japan, the color red had connotations that we may no longer understand today. What is the meaning of red in Japanese art? How has red been used in clothing, stage costumes, and other kinds of objects? This exhibition, taking place over summer vacation, offers a chance for visitors of all ages and their families to explore the various meanings and uses of this most alluring color.
