Tuesday-Thursday and Sunday 9:30am-5:30pm; Friday-Saturday 9:30am-9pm Japan has enjoyed a long tradition of storytelling through paintings and illustrated books, which continues today in the popular art of manga (comic books for children and adults). Showcasing more than 90 vibrant works drawn from the New York Public Library and other local collections, as well as works from the Metropolitan's own holdings, this exhibit traces the rich history of illustrated narratives that thrived in the medieval and early modern periods of Japan. The focus of the exhibition is some 20 rare, illustrated handscrolls called emaki. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=100109 The Metropolitan Museum of Art The Metropolitan Museum of Art
