Sharing Culture | Creating Community

Categories: Sturt Haaga Gallery

Japanese Garden 50th anniversaryOCTOBER 15, 2016 — JANUARY 29, 2017

From its inception more than 50 years ago, the Japanese Garden has brought together people from different backgrounds and cultures and offered them a new, intimate, and soul-nourishing experience with nature, as uniquely interpreted through the garden language of Japan. This exhibition explores how a garden happens; how it functions as a work of living art; how it transmits cultural ideas, and how it can act as a catalyst for building community.

Featured Artists: Andre Woodward, Ryan Taber, Mineko Grimmer, Hiroki Morinoue, Arthur Okamura, Kiyoshi Saito, Okiie Hashimoto, David Cobb, Kiyoshi Saito, Hide Kawanishi, Rikio Takahashi

Sharing Culture | Creating Community is funded in part by Heather and Paul Haaga and the Pasadena Art Alliance. Additional support for Sturt Haaga Gallery exhibitions is provided by Wells Fargo and Richard Carlson and Erin Maclean Culley.


The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays; closed Mondays. Free with admission.
