Museums & Exhibitions

Check out these museum exhibitions and special showings!

11/11/2017 - Intrinsic Matter: Opening Reception
The Japanese Friendship Garden is proud to have both Sammy Seung-min Lee and Kazu Oba as the latest exhibitors in the Inamori Pavilion. Lee and Oba bring their native traditions to contemporary art forms. Lee practices Joomchi, a technique from Korea that manipulates and felts mulberry paper. Oba practices traditional Japanese ceramic pattern and gravitates more towards utsuwa. Utsuwa translates to vessel in English and Oba considers his vessels incomplete until they are properly used. The reception will be held at JFG's Inamori Pavilion where guests will be able to meet both artists, enjoy hors d'oeuvres and beverages, and get a first hand look at JFG's latest exhibit. Sammy Seung-min Lee will also be holding a felting and casting workshop the same day from 11 am to 4 :00 PM. During this workshop, attendees will learn the same techniques Lee uses when working with hanji, Korean mulberry paper. RSVP:
