I decided to see the Toledo Museum of Art’s exhibit “Fresh Impressions: Early Modern Japanese Prints” before it closed (“TMA’s Japanese prints on display 1 more week,” Dec. 25). To my amazement, when I arrived at the museum, there were signs directing visitors to additional parking. Inside, the museum was a mass of people. The Japanese exhibit was overwhelming and overwhelmed.

In addition to the art, there were videos and a musician performing Japanese music. The Canaday Gallery was mobbed. It gave me a euphoric feeling to see such a crowd in Toledo’s cultural cornerstone. After all the bad news we read about our city, it was heartwarming to see so many people at the museum.
