Ikebana, or “living flowers,” is the ancient Japanese art of flower arrangement. In celebration of the National Cherry Blossom Festival and the opening of Meeting Tessai, join us for a rare opportunity to enter the world of Japanese living art with Naohiro Kasuya, the iemoto (headmaster) of the Ichiyo School of Ikebana in Tokyo. Inspired by the work of Tomioka Tessai, this flower arrangement performance and demonstration brings nature and art together. More than simply an interplay of delicate lines and graceful forms, this organic and timeless art form expresses deep appreciation for the harmony between people and nature.
