Japanese and Chinese Aesthetics and Woodblock Printing

Explore the Multiple Impressions exhibition and experience the central themes of Buddhist culture.

August 26, 2011 11:00am to 12:30pm

Explore the Multiple Impressions exhibition and gain an appreciation for the highly refined sense of beauty in Japanese and Chinese art. We will consider some central themes of Buddhist and Shinto culture as students learn basic woodblock printmaking and create a set of hand-printed notecards.

Multiple Impressions was organized by the University of Michigan Museum of Art with the cooperation and support of the China Academy of Art, Hangzhou, China. It is made possible in part by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Henry Luce Foundation, the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Foundation, and the University of Michigan Center for Chinese Studies, Confucius Institute, and Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs.
