Art Exhibit: Visions of Japan
February 15 @ 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m
Hayworth Fine Arts Center, Sechrest Art Gallery 
 

The Sechrest Gallery of Art will host an exhibition of Morton and Kyoko Ushio Huber’s extensive collection of Ukiyo-e prints alongside Dr. Huber’s equally extensive collection of photographs taken during his residence and travels in Japan in the 1960s and 70s.

This exhibition highlights what is clearly a historically significant collection of prints and will pair the genre images they contain with Dr. Huber’s large-scale black and white photographs of 20th century Japan. Placing historic images alongside newer ones will provide visitors to the Gallery with the unique opportunity to envision daily life in Japan in a new way; to see the worlds created by masters of Japanese printmaking, including Hokusai and Hiroshige, through a personal lens; and to appreciate the beauty of Japanese culture across history.

Movie: The Lion King

Disney’s The Lion King, directed by Jon Favreau, journeys to the African savanna, where a future king is born. Simba idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his. The all-star cast includes Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon. Disney’s The Lion King utilizes pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring treasured characters to life in a whole new way.
