On February 2, 2013 the Currier welcomes Lethal Beauty: Samurai Weapons and Armor, which will display the striking duality of deadly weaponry and artistic beauty from the Samurai culture of centuries past. The exhibition is curated by Dr. Andreas Marks, the director and chief curator of the Clark Center for Japanese Art & Culture in Hanford, California. With approximately 60 works by more than 30 master craftsmen from the 1200s to 1900s, Lethal Beauty features full suits of armor, helmets, warrior hats, face masks, long and short swords, daggers, rifles and more.
