Katachi exhibit at Yume Japanese Gardens opened on January 5 and continues to May 5, 2015
“An untranslatable term, katachi connotes the essence of Japanese design. But one does not have to be an artist, designer, or connoisseur of Japanese art and culture to grasp it. As a concept, it expresses the appealing beauty, the refined shapeliness, the time-tested functionality, and the fine workmanship of traditional Japanese crafts that have persisted for centuries. We present 50 objects embodying these qualities”.
Exhibit dates: Jan.5 – May 5, 2015 9:30 am – 4:30 pm daily.
Free with regular admission to the Gardens. www.tucsonjapan
