April 4, 2016

Keiichi Hara's latest animated feature film, Sarusuberi: Miss Hokusai is screening on April 16 at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC, USA.
The screening is part of the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival 2016, in a celebration marking the gift of 3,000 cherry trees from the city of Tokyo to the people of Washington, DC in 1912. As the national museum of Asian art for the United States, the Freer and Sackler Galleries join in this celebration with exhibitions and events exploring Japanese art and culture.

The Smithsonian Institution, one of the world's most esteemed educational and research institutes and associated museum complex, was founded in 1846 in accordance to the will of a British scientist named James Smithson (1765-1829), "for the increase and diffusion of knowledge among men." It counts 15 museums and 8 research centers.

The Freer Gallery of Art is the Smithsonian Institution's museum of east Asian art, including art from China, Korea, Japan, and Southeast Asia, as well as American art. When the gallery opened to the public in 1923, it was the first Smithsonian museum for fine arts. It is located at Jefferson Drive at 12th Street, SW, Washington, DC.
