The ART of TIME:
Japan and its Seasons
Exhibition opened Friday, February 21

"April showers bring May flowers" is a common phrase that is often used to describe the changes in the weather and the experience of springtime. In Japan, the experience of the seasons is embedded in language, celebrated in national festivals, and codified in art. Over the centuries, the Japanese transformed the passage of time as portrayed by the seasons into artistic aesthetic and metaphor as well as a cultural value. Come discover the symbolism of the seasons and learn the aesthetics of savoring nature at this exhibit:
