Celebrate Children’s Day at Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures

Childrens’ Day Exhibit at Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures

April 26, 2016 through May 29, 2016

Childrens-Day-featured-image-700x460

“Tango no Sekku or Children’s Day is a Japanese national holiday celebrating the healthy growth and development of children, especially boys. The purpose of the holiday is to encourage children to grow to be strong leaders and powerful individuals. Celebrated on May 5th, Children’s Day became a national holiday in 1948. Prior to that time many people celebrated May 5th as Boy’s Day. In celebration of the holiday schools have the day off and many families plan outings to fun places like amusement parks. Preceding Children’s Day is Girl’s Day, celebrated two months prior on March 3rd. There are many comparable traditions between the two celebrations, such as setting up a tiered display of traditionally dressed dolls and accessories. These traditional displays of figures and other objects are called Musha Ningyo.

The Children’s Day Display at The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures dates to the mid-20th century and was donated to the museum in 2014 by Nancy Phillips. The display will be up from April 26 through May 29, 2016.”

The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures is located at 4455 E. Camp Lowell Dr. in Tucson.  Website: http://www.theminitimemachine.org/

WWII Internment Camp art talk on March 26

Art of the Internment Camps: Culture Behind Barbed Wire

Saturday, March 26, 2016 (11:00AM – 12:00PM)

Joel D Valdez Main Library, 101 N. Stone Ave. Tucson, AZ

“President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s 1942 WWII Executive Order 9066 forced the removal of nearly 125,000 Japanese American citizens from the west coast, incarcerating them in ten remote internment camps in seven western states. Government photographers Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, and Ansel Adams documented the internment, and artists Toyo Miyatake, Chiura Obata, Isamu Noguchi, Henry Sugimoto, and Miné Okubo made powerful records of camp life. Arizona’s two camps were among the largest, and this chronicle illuminates an important episode of state history, one grounded in national agendas driven by prejudice and fear.

Betsy Fahlman is Professor of Art History at Arizona State University. An authority on the art history of Arizona, her books include New Deal Art in Arizona (2009) and The Cowboy’s Dream: The Mythic Life and Art of Lon Megargee (2002). She is the author of two essays in catalogues published in 2012 by the Museum of Northern Arizona in Flagstaff.”

Ikebana at the Yume Japanese Gardens

Spring Ikebana Festival at Yume Japanese Gardens, March 13 to 18, 2016

Ikebana-Picture-IV

Ikebana – “living flowers” – is one of Japan’s most time-honored arts and uniquely emphasizes shape, line, and form by giving equal weight to the stems and leaves of a plant rather than merely arranging its blooms. Classical ikebana flower arranging dates to the 15th century and successor schools have emerged since. See floral exhibits by five schools throughout the Gardens March 13-18. Free with regular Gardens admission. More info:  www.yumegardens.org, 2130 N. Alvernon Way in Tucson.
