Become a Fan Favorite

Weigh in on who should win a Sōtatsu: Making Waves prize package! Freer|Sackler staff have selected five finalists, which are featured in a Facebook album. The creator of the fan that receives the most likes will win a gift basket of Sōtatsu-related goodies. (Review the full list of contest rules.)

You can still join the countless artists who have been inspired by Tawaraya Sōtatsu’s work and decorate a fan like those in his Screen with Scattered Fans. Download the template and print out a blank fan—or better yet, head to the exhibition to find one in the galleries! Design it and share a picture of your completed work on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.

Check out all of the entries on our exhibition Tagboard, and sign up for our e-newsletters to stay up-to-date on Freer|Sackler exhibitions and events.
