This exhibition was organized by seminar members of Art History 154 “Japanese Prints.” Scripps College is fortunate to have over 1900 wood block prints and illustrated books that date from the 17th through 21st centuries, providing a remarkable overview of Japanese arts and culture. The students chose works that focused on the kabuki theater traditions, and have organized the exhibition to explore certain themes, such as government censorship, ghosts and monsters and the “47 Ronin”, and to highlight famous actors, including Ichikawa Danjuro IX (1838-1903), Ichikawa Sadanji (1842-1904), and Onoe Kikugoro V (1844-1903). They researched and wrote the exhibition labels which carry their initials: Ashleigh Blinkhorn, Scripps College ’10 AB Shawnette Charles, Pitzer College ’12 SC Jeanette Choe, Scripps College ’10 JC Christina Chong, Scripps College ’10 CC Lindsay Donahue, Scripps College ’10 LD Max Glasser, Pomona College ’10 MG Kathryn Hunt, Scripps College ’10 KH Emily Meredith Lewis, Pomona College ’10 EML Meredith Leyendecker, CMC ’10 ML Patrick Loehr, Pomona College ’10 PL Elaisha Nandrajog, CMC ’10 EN Dana Rome, Scripps College ’11 DR Taiki Sakai, Harvey Mudd College ’10 TS Danielle Shiomoto, Pitzer College ’11 DS Jennifer Tavé, Scripps College ’12 JT Janak S.
