Gain a new perspective with workshops, demonstrations, and art activities all centered around our exhibition, Landscape Relativities: The Collaborative Works of Arnold Chang and Michael Cherney.
The exhibition is a collaborative endeavor focused on traditional Chinese brush painting, photographic landscapes, and the imaginative meshing of the two. Stretch and play with the relationship between the media of painting and photography with traditional Chinese brush painting workshops, photo collaging, community cyanotypes, and impermanent landscapes.
As part of our family day activities, come in and experience the interactive installations based on childhood fort building created in the museum’s workshops ( Teen & Public) with local artist Mylan Nguyen. Made of painted silk these sculptural environments will offer the young, and the young at heart, a place to relax, read, draw, and be inspired.

Take a step back in time to Edo, Japan (present day Tokyo) to a time of peace, prosperity, and booming artistic achievements. Enjoy a sampling of the many art forms one would find in the streets of Edo, including paper making, woodblock printmaking, origami, and etoki or current day kamishibai storytelling. Cap off your day with a screening of the newly released blockbuster, Kubo and the Two Strings, which is set in this exciting period in Japanese history.
The day’s activities are inspired by our current exhibition, Styled with Poise: Figures in Japanese Paintings and Prints.
