Curator's Circle: D. Wagner - Evolution of Japanese Armor

The image of the samurai on the battlefield is closely tied to the suits of armor they wore. Magnificently imposing and beautifully detailed, these works of art were perfectly designed to protect their wearers and convey their authority. This lecture by Douglas Wagner of the Denver Art Museum's Asian art department will illustrate various types of Japanese armor, explaining the events and forces that drove changes in its appearance, construction and function through more than thirteen centuries.

Reception following program at the Art Hotel, 12th and Broadway, 4th Floor Welcome Gallery and Fire Terrace.  Drink, hors d oureves, and a chance to visit with the speaker.  Please RSVP before May 11.
