Drawn from the Museum’s Permanent Collection, this exhibition features a selection of 19th and 20thcentury prints, paintings, and lacquerware depicting celebrated waterfalls accompanied by a delightful array of bold, colorful kites.
The exhibition explores the idea of transformative experiences by highlighting waterfalls and soaring kites as two aspects of Japanese culture that have inspired devotion to ritual, profound poetry, and sublime paintings since the tenth century. These beautiful images capture the imagination and hold promise for a transcendent moment, both physical and spiritual.
