Each semester we host four opportunities to see a rotation of original, rare works on paper from Dürer, Rembrandt, Japanese woodblock prints, and 19th-century/modernist artists, artworks that, due to their extreme light sensitivity, cannot normally be displayed in exhibitions. From November 9-11, we invite you to our Print Study Room to witness iconic Japanese woodblock prints for yourself! Ideal for individuals and university classes, this rare opportunity will educate and inspire.
