Hofstra is keeping busy this winter season and invites you to check out a fantastic exhibit. If you’re dropping off your student for the spring semester, take a break from heavy traffic and check out the Hofstra Museum’s current exhibit, “Land of the Rising Sun: Art of Japan,” which is currently on display through February 2, 2014, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. at the David Filderman Gallery located inside the Joan and Donald E. Axinn Library (south campus) on the ninth floor. The exhibit, which features 41 works of art and objects dating from the 16th to the 20th century, was recently covered in a New York Times article found here. Local parents will appreciate experiencing a rich exhibit without having to travel into the city.

 The collection “provides insight into the rich artistic traditions and cultural evolution of the country of Japan,” said the exhibit’s curator, Karen T. Albert, Hofstra Museum’s Associate Director of Exhibitions and Collections. Guests will be able to see depicted treasured Japanese shrines, temples, stores, restaurants and more.  The famous illustrated series, “One Hundred Famous Places in Edo for Flowers” as pictured above shows the people, daily activities and communities of Japan in the 18th and 19th centuries.

“Respect for the natural environment, which has long been an important element of Japanese culture can be seen in the works on display, particularly the hanging scrolls and woodblock prints,” said Albert. The process and components of hanging scrolls and woodblock printing are explained at the touchscreen kiosk located in the exhibit’s gallery.

  22. چرا از نمايندگي تعمير جاروبرقي استفاده کنيم؟
    برخي عيب‌هاي جاروبرقي، تنها به کمي دانش و تجربه نياز دارد تا تعمير جاروبرقي در منزل انجام گيرد
    و نيازي به مراجعه به نمايندگي نباشد. اما خرابي جاروبرقي، هميشه به دست خود شما قابل حل نيست و در بسياري موارد، به وجود يک نيروي متخصص نياز است
    . بنابراين در صورت در دست داشتن ضمانت نامه، به نمايندگي تعمير جاروبرقي مراجعه کنيد و در غير اين صورت از دانش يک تعميرکار بهره ببريد.
    البته براي مراجعه به نمايندگي، نياز قطعي به ضمانت نامه نيست و خدمات نمايندگي‌ها شامل حال هرگونه مراجعه‌کننده‌اي مي‌شوند.
