Artist Katsushika Hokusai (Japanese, 1760–1849)

Registration Deadline – June 6, 2015

HLAA and ALDA Boston Chapters are fortunate to have the opportunity to view the Hokusai exhibit,  made up of prints from the MFA’s permanent collection which are very susceptible to damage by light and  rarely on view.
Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) was the first Japanese artist to be internationally recognized, and he continues to inspire artists around the world.

As the home of the largest and finest collection of Japanese art outside Japan—including the greatest variety of Hokusai works in any museum—the MFA is uniquely positioned to offer a comprehensive exhibition of this remarkable artist. Drawing from extensive holdings of paintings, woodblock prints, and illustrated printed books, the Museum will showcase an array of works from Hokusai’s seven-decade career, including lesser-known pieces depicting whimsical instructions on how to draw, dynamic paintings on paper lanterns, and elaborate cut-out dioramas.

(Please note that the July accessible tour at the MFA has been postponed until Sunday, August 9.)

How to Pre-Register for HLAA & ALDA Boston Chapters Guided Tours

Attendance is limited and pre-registration is required by the dates listed for each program.  To pre-register or for more information, either
email  lwa…, and  indicate the name of the tour and date in the subject line.  or
phone 617-369-3302.

Since the museum wants to accommodate as many members as possible and since the number of assistive listening devices is limited, the museum has implemented a policy of one guest per HLAA/ALDA member  for tours, starting June, 2015.
When you register, please indicate if you would like a neckloop or headset for the tour.

Registered participants will receive a confirmation prior to the date of the tour with entrance and cancellation information.
Because the Gallery Tour Listening System equipment is reserved for hearing loss support group participants, the equipment is not available to other MFA Boston visitors for drop-in tours.

For that reason, guests of this program are requested to be aware of the the following policies:
Participants who register for accessible tours but cannot attend should note the cancellation policy on the confirmation to ensure that listening equipment is available to other visitors.

If you are unable to attend on the day of the tour, please email Karen Moss kar… as well as Lisa Warren.
Late registrations  cannot be accepted.
Those who have not pre-registered may only join a tour on a standby basis and will be turned away if registration is full.
Tours will begin promptly at start time.  Attendees should arrive 15 minutes prior to start time.  We strongly recommend that new users of the FM system consult with their audiologist to become familiar with the t-coil feature on their hearing aids and cochlear implants.
