The Archive > 1970s: JAPAN TODAY


One of the best tours in the world this spring for American people is being offered in reverse. Japan is coming to visit them.

The “visit” is called JAPAN TODAY, a three-month celebration of modern Japanese arts and culture in seven major cities throughout the country.

The “itinerary” consists of a sweeping program of exhibitions, performances, film showings and panel discussions. They explore all trends in the arts and crafts of Japan today and offer an overview of the economy, the politics and the life patterns of a vitally important contemporary culture.

Opening mid- April 1979, designed to heighten American understanding of Japan.

This celebration is one of the most extensive efforts one country has made to educate itself about another. (Carole Sorell spearheaded this project as Senior Vice President at Ruder & Finn.)
