Japan is the Key: Collecting Prints and Ivories, 1900–1920
March 30–July 21, 2013
Gallery One

This exhibition presents highlights from Carnegie Museum of Art’s significant collection of iconic Japanese woodblock prints (ukiyo-e) in an entirely new way, uniting them with Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s holdings of exquisite Japanese carved ivories (okimono).

In this video, art handlers transport an ivory eagle to an area where Objects Conservator Gretchen Anderson will publicly evaluate and prepare the piece for exhibition.
