W.H. Over Museum displays Japanese woodblock prints
The W.H. Over Museum will display Japanese Wood-block Prints from the USD Collection throughout the month of September.

USD is privileged to have a substantial Asian collection donated largely by Sherwin and Polly Grassl in 1989.

In addition to many pieces of fabric, ceramics, and scroll art, the Grassl collection includes 50 excellent Japanese woodblock prints from the 19th century.


The Grassl woodblock prints have been augmented by donations from several other sources, most importantly from Edward and Anna Akeley.

The current exhibition is a sampler of the university's woodblock print collection, offering viewers examples of the woodblock technique and the various subjects typical of 19th-century Japanese printmaking.

The exhibit will hang through the end of the month of September at the W.H. Over Museum, 414 E. Clark St., Vermillion. For more information, call (605) 677-5228 or e-mail whover@usd.ed.
