Saitō Kiyoshi: Graphic Awakening Exhibition Dinner
Join Dr. Rhiannon Paget as we explore the first comprehensive exhibition of this artist’s work in the United States.
Saitō Kiyoshi’s (1907–1997) keen sense of design, superb technique, and engagement with an appealing variety of themes made him one of the best-known and most-popular Japanese print artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition focuses on prints Saitō created in the 1940s and 50s, arguably the most vibrant period of his career, and includes several rare, early designs.
This event is by invitation only. RSVP information will be available at a later date.
