Art Institute of Chicago to Reopen Japanese Art Galleries

Following nine months of comprehensive renovations, on September 26, 2010, the Art Institute of Chicago will reopen its suite of Japanese Art Galleries, now housed in the new Roger L. and Pamela Weston Wing of the museum, with a striking installation that newly presents one of the finest collections of Japanese art in the country.

Occupying some 6,500 square feet on the museum’s first floor, the expanded Japanese art galleries at the Art Institute represent the first major reinstallation of the East Asian art collection in nearly two decades and are made possible by the generosity of Roger and Pamela Weston.
