"After the Floating World: The Enduring Art of Japanese Woodblock Prints" and 
"The Unsettled Lens: Photography from the Permanent Collection" are interesting  
original exhibits that end Sunday at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, with free 
admission for all women on Sunday in honor of Mother's Day.
While the black and white photographic exhibit was illuminating with photographers
like Alfred Stiglitz and Brett Weston, the Japanese woodblock print exhibit was
terrific because of the prints themselves, the explanations or didactics, written by the
museum, given for each print - including why the colors of the actors' faces, and the 
short films of Kabuki and NO or NOH theater performances. 
The Inasmuch Foundation funded tours of the exhibits for more than 3,300 students.
The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. 
Sunday. It is located at 415 Couch Drive. Admission ranges from $12 to $5, with
free admission for active military, children under 5 and all women on Mother's Day.
