The Floating World: Ukiyo-e Prints
The Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum is proud to exhibit The Floating World scheduled to open August 23 and run through October 23, 2011.
The Floating World: Ukiyo-e Prints from the Lauren Rogers Museum of Art proudly shares 50 examples of wood panel prints from Japan's Edo Period. With the help of internationally known ukiyo-e print expert Frederick Gookin, LRMA founder Wallace B. Rogers created a superb collection in just under five years during the 1920s. Gookin's expertise and Roberts' funding yielded a collection rich in the works of Hiroshige, and expansive enough to include Hokusai, Utagawa, and other improtant printmakers. The collection was stored much of the 20th Century, and has rarely been exhibited outside of Mississippi.
Financial assistance for this project has been provided by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
The Crisp Museum is located in the Cultural Arts Center at River Campus, 518 S. Fountain St., Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Museum Hours weekdays: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., weekends: 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. For additional information e-mail email@example.com or call (573) 651-2301.
