Sogetsu Ikebana Show
Sept. 9-10
8 a.m.-6 p.m.
MacMillan Auditorium

Sogetsu Ikebana is a disciplined art form that brings nature and humanity together, steeped in a centuries-old philosophy of developing a closeness with nature. Ikebana is an art, in the same sense that painting and sculpture has a recorded history; it is backed up by articulate theories; and is concerned with creativity. In Japan, flower arrangements are used as decorations on a level with paintings and other art objects. Be inspired by the individuality and imaginative arrangements these practitioners display.

Want to try it yourself? Sign up for a Japanese Sogetsu Ikebana class on Saturday, Sept. 16, 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.  Presented by Sensei Yoshie Suzuki Babcock. You will get the rare opportunity to learn this serene art form and walk away with your own one-of-a-kind floral sculpture. To register online, click here.
