FRIDAY–Sunday, August 11–12

San Diego and Los Angeles

JASA Excursion to Southern California

JASA is hosting a special excursion for members to see a diverse array of Japanese art currently on exhibition. The program begins on Friday, August 11, in San Diego for a full day of activities in Balboa Park. We will start at the Mingei International Museum, which is exhibiting a fascinating selection of “Kanban,” traditional Japanese shop signs, which have been gathered from museums across the United States and Japan, as well as from the Mingei’s extensive collection. Chief Curator Christine Knoke will take us through the exhibition. 

In the afternoon, we will visit the San Diego Museum of Art, where Associate Curator for Asian Art Diana Chau will take us through a small but interesting print show, Modern Japan: Prints from the Taisho Era (1912–1926) and Beyond, as well as the permanent collection of Japanese and Asian art. We’ll also see some special objects from storage, including a rare Edo-period handscroll.

On Saturday, August 12, we will travel to Los Angeles to see the magnificent collection of Japanese cloisonné objects donated by Donald Gerber and Sueann Sherry to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art  and currently on exhibition at the Pavilion for Japanese Art. Mr. Gerber will personally lead us through the exhibition and talk about his experience collecting some of the finest examples of cloisonné art in the world. Afterward, you are free to visit Japanese Painting: A Walk in Nature, which is also on display in the Pavilion.

The trip is limited to 15 people. There is no program charge; however, participants are responsible for transportation and lodging. Hotel recommendations (in San Diego) will be provided on request. Participants are responsible for museum admissions. Cost for the catered dinner on Saturday will be determined. We should have enough cars to transport participants from San Diego to Los Angeles on August 12, but if we need to rent a small bus, that cost will be determined. We recommend out-of-towners fly into San Diego and leave from Los Angeles.  

Registration is first come first served. If you would like to attend, please register by clicking this link: 8/11- 8/12 2017 Southern California Visitthen click the Register Now button and fill out the registration form.
