Last Chance: Kimono in the 20th Century

We’re coming to the end of our exhibition Kimono in the 20th Century! This exhibition has been on view for almost a full year with a rotation of kimono last fall– if you saw the exhibition in its first months, there’s a whole new set to see, but only for a few more days. Today, we’re looking back on the fun we’ve had with the exhibition. In addition, don’t miss this Sunday’s panel on the modern design that was so influential to the kimono artisans who made the textiles in the exhibition.
