In March 2015, eight Japanese artists hosted a group of 14 regional Texas artists (and one California artist) at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum. Now, Texas is returning the favor.
Crosscurrent International Exchange Show U.S.-Japan opens November 19 at the Wichita Falls Museum of Art at Midwestern State University (MSU), reports the Times Record News. Both exhibitions were co-curated by Yasunari Nakagomi, the director of the Association of International Exchange, and Professor Suguru Hiraide of MSU.
Just as the Texas artists visited museums and historic places in and around Tokyo, the Japanese artists will be making an art tour of Texas. If you see a group of artistic Japanese people poking around your local galleries or museums, make sure to give them a big Texan kon’nichiwa !
