A Kimono-Wrapped Gospel: The Mingei Prints of Sadao Watanabe

Experience the Gospel through new eyes in this fabulous exhibit featuring the art of internationally-acclaimed Japanese artist Sadao Watanabe. Watanabe merged his love of Christ with his interest in reclaiming Japanese folk art traditions to create one-of-a-kind stencil prints representing biblical stories through the lense of his own culture. This exhibit, featuring art prints owned by a number of LCMS individuals and entities, runs from April 15, 2022–January 5, 2024.
