Reminder!!! Last chance to enjoy Chiura Obata, Art of Yosemite in the Yosemite Museum. The exhibit is up through
October 21, 2007. This exhibit explores the work of the artists Chiura Obata (1885 – 1975) who first visited Yosemite in
1927, producing watercolors that led to a series of prints made by master woodblock artists in Japan. The show
extensively covers his earliest visits during 1927-1930, but includes works produced up to 1958. This exhibit displays
over 30 woodblock prints, sumi and watercolor paintings, sketches, a well as his actual paints, brushes, and artifacts. (M.
