Everyday Art

August 24- Nov 19, 2010

Brauer Museum of Art

Valparaiso, Indiana 46383-4543

Casual Kimono from Mid 20th-Century Japan

Katherine Kusler's collection of daily wear kimono from the 1920s to 1960s veers away from the high art of traditional Japanese kimono to showcase garments of a distinctly modern sensibility & style.
The bold motifs, bright colors, and sense of whimsy of these kimono capture the spirit & lingering influence of Japan's own Roaring Twenties

In addition to the kimono collection,
Sadao Watanabe(Japanese print maker)
prints will be on display

Hours: Tue, Th, Fri 10-5
Wed 10-8:30
Sat, Sun 12-5

Thanks! I'll have to head out to see this one. The last show there, African art and artifacts, was amazing.
