3rd Permanent Collection Special Exhibition— Isamu Wakabayashi, Artist and Father
This event has ended.
Presenting toys and picture books made by the sculptor Isamu Wakabayashi (1936–2003) for his two daughters. Small wooden figurines of characters from stories they loved such as “My Father’s Dragon” and “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” a doll house he made for doll-sized versions of them, picture books featuring them as main characters, and presents he gave them once they reached adulthood are on display. These works from the Wakabayashi Family Collection are not simply toys, but living tools of communication for a family. They show another side of the sculptor ten years after his death.
