WHAT: A performance of Western music of Kiyochika’s era by Japanese violinist Mayuko Kamio
WHEN: March 27th at 7:30 p.m.
WHAT: “ImaginAsia: Illuminated Nights,” a drop-in workshop where families can create nightscapes of favorite evening activities
WHEN: March 29th & 30th, and April 5th, 6th, 12th, & 13th
WHAT: A film series based on the theme of nocturnes, featuring movies that occur solely at night, will be announced later in the spring.
All of the aforementioned events are free of charge.
The Arthur M. Sackler Gallery is located at 1050 Independence Avenue SW.
