Hina-matsuri (Girls Day Festival) is perhaps Japan's most famous celebration with its elaborate display of dolls depicting a stylized imperial court. Yet few, even in Japan, are familiar with its origins and symbolism. East Asian scholar and author, Alan Pate, will explore its evolution, the various dolls displayed, and its forgotten meanings.

In conjunction with the exhibition Kokeshi: From Folk Art to Art Toy
