The exhibition JapanAmerica: Points of Contact, 1876-1970, is touring the country, and while it’s on view at the Crocker Art Museum, Sacramentans will have the opportunity to take an in-depth look at what it takes to tell the rich story of cultural exchange between Japan and the United States through visual art objects, from the 19th century to the 20th. Nancy E. Green, the Gale and Ira Drukier curator of European and American art, prints, and drawing at Cornell University’s Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, will give the backstory of the JapanAmerica connection. Space is limited, and advance registration is recommended.
