June 2, 2019 at 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Exhibit runs through August 28, 2019.

Despite what popular culture would have us believe, the creatures of Pokémon do not rank among Japan’s finest artistic depictions of animals. What does? Check out the more than 300 renditions in this major exhibit (free), which spans 16 centuries of animal representations, in contexts ranging from religious to erotic to irreverent.
