12th Annual Ikebana Art Exhibit 2021
Time & Location
About the Event
Ikebana, which translates to "giving life to flowers" is the art of Japanese flower arranging and is a 600-year-old tradition. This year's exhibit will be presented by The Sonoran Desert Sogetsu Ikebana Study Group. Sogetsu Ikebana is a contemporary Ikebana art style that encourages creativity and artistic expression using the natural beauty of flowers, leaves, and branches with unexpected and unconventional materials.
Our local artists will exhibit traditional styles with traditional branches and flowers as well as exotic works with local desert objects and unusual materials like plastics, metals, and fabrics.
In addition to the Ikebana on display, please enjoy viewing The 1,000 Cranes, 1,000 Dreams Project- From Yume Japanese Gardens and Museum of Tucson. As a response to the many people seeking ways to recover from the wounds that the pandemic has caused, Yume Japanese Gardens and Museum of Tucson launched a signal community project to provide hope and healing as a bridge to a happier tomorrow. The project name stems from the meaning of Yume in English – “dream” – and from fables about the graceful and elegant Japanese crane, said to live for 1,000 years. The project’s mission was to bring together people to fashion folded paper sculptures of the stately bird, according to the Japanese tradition of Senbazuru, which from granting wishes evolved to shrink the darkness of disasters and brighten the light of individual and group wellbeing. Fruit of its symbolically long life, the crane enjoys hope for a happy future. That is the healing fulfillment Yume Japanese Garden wished for their community to receive through the 1,000 Cranes, 1,000 Dreams Project. Please don't miss this chance to experience it at the Japanese Friendship Garden of Phoenix.
