An Exhibition from The Art Center’s Permanent Collection of Woodblock Prints and Cloisonné from the Robinson Collection and Kunz Estate

Approach a great painting as thou wouldst approach a great prince.

The Art Center of Western Colorado’s Permanent Collection Committee presents a display of Japanese prints from the Robinson Collection for the first time with the works of Margaret Kunz, a stunning display of glass enamel and cloisonné. This exhibition places these two Japanese traditions side by side, capturing the essence of a time when Japanese culture and crafts captivated the world leading to the expansion and development of artistic trends in the West. We invite you to take a walk with us through time exploring the floating world that was Japan in the 19th century.
