Reinventing Tokyo is the first exhibition ever held in the United States to consider portrayals of Tokyo in light of the city’s continual reinvention since its founding, under the name Edo, more than 400 years ago. Reinventing Tokyo is also the first major international loan exhibition of Japanese art ever presented at the Mead Art Museum, which is known for the strength of its collection of Japanese prints and the depth of its commitment to Japanese studies. By opening the exhibition in 2012, the Mead marks the centenary of a transformational gift from the people of Tokyo to the people of the United States: the gift of 3,000 cherry trees in 1912 from Yukio Ozaki, the Mayor of Tokyo, to the city of Washington, D.C.
