Experience the museum after dark and take part in a series of activities and demonstrations all about Japan. Immersed in the Contemplate Japan exhibition, create crafts to take home, listen to traditional music, watch demonstrations and much more. A detailed schedule of activities and demonstrations will be published in February.
Program made possible by the Kathy and John Howell Art Enrichment Program.
This event is part of a series of programs from April 16 through April 21.
Kadō/The Way of Flowers is a series of programs that marks the first time that all nine exhibitions of Contemplate Japan will come together. For this moment in time, a Sogetsu Ikebana exhibit will join the other Japanese cultural art forms represented. Created by designers from across the country, Sogetsu ikebana arrangements will complete the experience for just one week in April. The ancient form of Kadō is the root of all schools of ikebana and the Sogetsu designs on display represent the most modern and inclusive school of practice. The arrangements will fill the Brunnier Art Museum from April 16 to April 21. Then gone- ephemeral, like the cherry blossoms. Like life.
