“The Dolls of Japan” exhibit opens to the public, September 8. The attraction, sponsored by the City of Henderson and the Japan America Society of Nevada, celebrates the diversity of the arts, culture and traditions of the Japanese. Henderson is the only stop in the continental United States in 2009.
Clark County students, as well as members of the community, will have the opportunity to view 70 unique dolls dressed in traditional clothing, hairstyles and adornments. Museum curators from the Japan Foundation in Tokyo selected the most fascinating figurines including the Hina Ningyo (dolls of the Hina Festival) and Gogatsu Ningyo (dolls for the Boy’s Festival) to be displayed. The exhibit will serve as an educational tool for visitors to learn about the various characteristics of the Japanese culture.
