Multi-Media Performance

In honor of the museum’s centennial year, we present a multimedia performance inspired by the life of Lafcadio Hearn (1850–1904). Like museum founder Charles Lang Freer, Hearn traveled to Japan in the nineteenth century. But instead of collecting art, Hearn collected stories, embedding himself with ordinary Japanese people and compiling books of folklore and observations that are still read today.

Film admission policy: Films are shown in the 300-seat Meyer Auditorium. Free tickets (up to four per person per film) can be reserved in advance. Patrons may also register at the door if seats are still available.
