Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art presents Living with the Spirits

September 29, 2019 - April 26, 2020

During festivals and seasonal occasions in China, family members select brightly colored prints to display on their doors, windows, walls, and furniture. These prints, called New Year pictures (nianhua), heighten the cheerful holiday feeling. More than decoration, they represent cultural and spiritual values. They depict positive images of deities that protect the family, emblems of good fortune, and theatrical scenes. The installation in this gallery re-creates the decoration of a traditional Chinese home.
