Japanese Prints on Display in TLC and First Floor Gallery


A new exhibit highlighting prints and scrolls from UCSF's East Asian Collection is now on display in the Parnassus Campus Library's first floor gallery. Enlarged reproductions of several of the prints also adorn the walls of the Teaching and Learning Center on the second floor. The large-scale prints enhance the TLC's "huddle spaces," which were designed to promote impromptu collaboration among students and faculty outside of the classroom.

The prints on exhibit represent a cross-section of the collection, featuring colorful ukiyo-e scenes on topics such as women’s health, diet and nutrition, spirituality, views of foreigners, and traditional Chinese healing methods.

Please enjoy these treasures from our East Asian Collection. View the entire collection of Japanese woodblock prints.

T-shirts and other items featuring these prints are available for sale in the Library's Zazzle store.
