Rooted in History: Traditional Japanese Villages
Tues., May 8, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Japanese villages from tropical southern Okinawa to remote northern Hokkaido trace their history back—at least in legend—for more than a millennium. Because of this long saga, the residents possess a particularly strong tie to their places on the earth. These connections have led to the development of distinctive local foods, artistic products, musical forms, and dialects. In this illustrated lecture, art historian Robert Mintz
highlights the special character of traditional villages and offers a taste of life as it has always been in rural Japan. Mintz is assistant curator of Asian art at the Walters Art Museum.
