Akio Morita

July 13 through September 9, 2007

Developed by members of the Akio Morita family, this exhibition commemorates the remarkable life and achievements of Mr. Akio Morita (1921-1999), co-founder of Sony Corporation.

While more widely known as an electronic innovator who left an incredible impact on music, movies, and entertainment, it was Akio Morita’s efforts to produce closer ties between Japan and the rest of the world that brought him international recognition, including an Honorary KBE (Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) for strengthening Anglo-Japan relations.

The Akio Morita exhibition is comprised of photographs, videos, and artifacts which provide insight into a devoted husband, father, internationalist and visionary genius.

The Los Angeles presentation of the Akio Morita exhibition was made possible, in part, by the generous support of William G. & Carol K. Ouchi, the Sig & Betsy Kagawa Foundation, Yoshiko Morita, American Airlines, and Sony Electronics Inc. Additional support was provided by Hiroko Onoyama Sugawara.
