The DIA's next special exhibition—Samurai: Beyond the Sword—opens in less than one month!

The exhibition offers a rare opportunity to experience the world of the Japanese Samurai. Moving beyond the stereotype of the warrior, it explores the role of the military arts and the importance of Samurai engagement in the cultural, spiritual, and art worlds of their time.
