Contemporary WA: Shodo/Sumi painting exhibit
Start Date: 8/27/2017 All Day
End Date: 10/30/2017
Event Description:
The University Libraries welcome you to experience Contemporary WA: Shodo/Sumi paintings of Sensou Miyajima and Tei Kobayashi, now through October 30 in Norlin Library.

You may view the exhibit in Norlin's Ventana and Triptych Galleries, as well as the Special Collections & Archives Reading Room, all located on the 3rd floor. The SCA Reading Room, N345, is open from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. The rest of the exhibit is accessible whenever Norlin Library is open.

The exhibit showcases a collaboration between traditional Japanese calligraphy and enigmatic "Nihonga"(Japanese Style) painting.  You may enjoy a glimpse into the heart of Hikaru Genji as he speaks of his love in Lady Murasaki Shikibu's Waka from the Heian Period, revel in the ephemera of Haiku, or relish the quiet beauty of the morning glory.

A small opening reception is planned for Wednesday, Aug. 30, 5:30 p.m., outside the Special Collections & Archives Reading Room in Norlin Library.

Sponsored by: 
Special Collections & Archives, University of Colorado Boulder Libraries, The Book Arts League and the Japan Exchange & Teaching Alumni Association of the Rocky Mountains.
