Helen Frankenthaler, Woodcuts, and the Tale of Genji

A conversation with Karen Kunc and Ikuho Amano

5:30 pm
Erin Hanas, (402) 472-3541,
Karen Kunc, artist/printmaker and emeritus Cather Professor of art, and Ikuho Amano, associate professor of Japanese at UNL, will give insight to “Tales of Genji I,” a thirty-four-color woodblock print inspired by the world’s first novel. The live, museum-from-home event will be moderated by Melissa Yuen, associate curator of exhibitions at Sheldon.

“The Tale of Genji,” written in the early years of the 11th-century by Murasaki Shikibu, a lady-in-waiting in Japan’s imperial court during the Heian period, follows the life of fictional Prince Genji, the disowned son of an ancient emperor.

Frankenthaler’s “Tales of Genji I” is on view in Sheldon’s Focus Gallery through December.
