New Exhibits!

June 3 to August 31, 2014  

Samurai Culture: Treasures of South Florida Collections Samurai Culture was organized by the Morikami Museum in conjunction with various collectors across South Florida. The exhibition features an array of samurai suits of armor and weapons fashioned during the Edo period (1600 – 1868). Also displayed are a variety of paintings and prints depicting samurai life made during both the Edo- and Meiji period (1868 – 1912). Although the samurai class was abolished soon after the Meiji Restoration of 1868, many samurai families held on to priceless armor, swords, helmets, sundry other adornments, and paintings and prints in commemoration of one of the most illustrious warrior classes in the world. From A Quiet Place: The Paper Sculptures of Kyoko Hazama While most of us are familiar with handmade Japanese paper or washi, incorrectly called rice paper, and the fascinating art of paper folding known as origami, few have seen Kyoko Hazama’s magnificent paper sculptures: delicate, intricately detailed and highly personal paper sculptures that she describes as “symbolic self-portraits.”
