Our popular 2014 exhibit “The Cat’s Meow: An Exhibition of Ukiyo-e Felines Beckoning Good Fortune” is back again with even more power. Beautiful women doting over their feline friends, children playing with cats, cats guarding silkworms from mice, dancing cats, monster cats—they’re all gathering at the Hiroshige Museum of Art. For your enjoyment we have assembled the purr-fect collection of ukiyo-e cat art from the Edo Period and Meiji Era, and a fur-midable variety of cat dolls from across Japan. We’re not kitten around when we say this exhibit is a hiss-terical introduction to the multi-faceted world of the cat.
