KANBAN

Traditional Shop Signs of Japan A fusion of art, design and commerce, kanban refers to traditional signs that Japanese merchants displayed to advertise and give identity and expression to their shops. From carved scenes of carp climbing waterfalls to images of seductive courtesans with painted faces, this exhibition provides a rare opportunity to figuratively walk and shop the streets of traditional Japan. On view April 15 to October 8.


TRAPPINGS

Homage to the Horse and Other Steeds Timed with this year's racing season and the first ever Breeder's Cup event in Del Mar in November, this exhibition features objects from around the globe that celebrate the speed, power and serviceability of the horse and other noble beasts of burden. Pulled from the Museum's permanent collection and private lenders, this original exhibition will highlight classic horse figures and accoutrement of Asia and Europe; clay and wood horses of India; and artifacts of U.S., Native American and Mexican horse culture. Trappings for bullocks from Afghanistan to Indonesia, and camel trappings from Asia and the Middle East will also be shown, including a group of Iranian saddlebags. On view May 26 to November 12.
