Following the Sogetsu ikebana demonstration with Marcia Borel, enter the Brunnier Art Museum to find the Contemplate Japan exhibition complete with Sogetsu arrangements from ikebana practitioners from across the country. Each arrangement explores balanced asymmetry, three dimensionality, line, space, mass, and relationships between materials, color and movement. With this in mind, view each arrangement and experience Sogetsu, as it seeks a new level of interest, power, or unique perspective. These living sculptures will be revealed in a ribbon cutting ceremony and celebrated with a reception.

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.
