Japanese Display

The Library is currently featuring a display on Japanese art and culture. Antique ceramics, Japanese dolls and a traditional kimono are featured. The exhibit also includes giclee (ink jet) prints of watercolor paintings by Art department Associate Professor Moira Hahn. Hahn’s works reference traditional “Ukiyo-e” prints from 19th century Japan. These traditional pictures of the “floating world” depict beautiful landscapes and courtesans of historic Japan. Hahn’s modern works are humorous interpretations imbued with historic visual elements and revised with contemporary Japanese cultural icons from manga and anime. A demonstration of a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony will be performed by SCC student Yeong Lee; date and time to be announced.
