Florida Institute of Technology’s Foosaner Art Museum presents Ukiyo-e to Shin Hanga: Japanese Woodcuts from the Syracuse University Art Collection, from March 28 through May 24.

The 40-piece exhibition highlights the designed images of over 20 influential Japanese artists from key times in the country’s cultural history: the height of color Ukiyo-e printmaking (1780-1868) through the Meiji period (1868-1912) to 20th century impressions of the Shin Hanga movement (1915-1940s).

Foosaner Art Museum’s dark and imaginary current exhibit, Fear and Folly: The Visionary Prints of Francisco Goya and Federico Castello, is rousing delight for Melbourne’s art lovers.

In this edition of Inside Florida Tech, host Wes Sumner speaks with FIT’s Director of University Museums, Carla Funk, about two thrilling events that accompany this exhibit.
