Some are considered guardian spirits while others are harmful tricksters, deceiving humans and coaxing them into foolish, reckless behavior. This exhibition comprises paintings, colorful woodblock prints, sculptures, masks and other objects depicting a host of legendary ghosts, gods and otherworldly beings.
When: on exhibit through Sept. 16
Hours: 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.  Closed Monday.
Admission: adults $13, seniors $12, children and students $8; children 5 and younger get in free.
