Viz to provide exhibit with video, imagery and displays.

Viz has sent out a press release stating that they will be participating in the Jump to Japan exhibit that ANN wrote about on January 16th. Viz will be suplying the exhibit with video material, Hamtaro "imagery" (video content, stills and signage) and panels from Shonen Jump that focus on some anime and amnag questions like "What's up with the hair?" and "Why the big eyes?"

The exhibit, which will tour children's museums at more than 70 U.S. cities over the next four years, is one of the most extensive explorations of arts-focused Asian pop culture ever staged. The exhibit opens in Seattle on January 24 and will remain at The Children's Museum at the Seattle Center in Seattle, WA through June 6, 2004 before moving on to the next location. The 3,000 square foot exhibit is split into three areas that cover “Fantastic Animation,” “Manga Mania,” and “Artful Traditions.”
