DESCRIPTION

The Japanese sensibility with nature is apparent in the art of ikebana, a progressive and dynamic art form that continues to evolve while staying deeply rooted in tradition. Ikebana is an ephemeral art form where beauty lays in the intrinsic nature of flowers and plants; the natural world changes and the flora wax and wane with the seasons. Today, classical ikebana arrangements are found displayed alongside the most abstract and avant-garde styles. This lecture and demonstration program is performed by four major Bay Area ikebana schools: Ikenobo, Ohara, Sogetsu, and Wafu.
