Hina Matsuri: Japanese Dolls from the Tsuji Family Collection

Opening at Honolulu Academy of Arts
Feb. 11 - June 6, 2010
Gallery 20

Just in time for Girls Day (which is 3-03-10), the Academy presents three sets of dolls from the Edo-Meiji (1868-1912) periods. The Tsuji family collected the dolls in the early 20th century and donated them to the museum in 2002. This exhibition is the Academy’s way of thanking the Tsuji family for its generous gift and of offering the community wishes for an auspicious spring season.
