New Kimono Exhibit at Yume Japanese Gardens from October 15 to December 31, 2021

New Exhibit at Yume Japanese Gardens and Museum of Tucson –” A selection of valuable vintage and modern kimono, from the collections of Yume Japanese Gardens and Museum of Tucson, will be on display at the Gardens from October 15th through December 31st, 2021.

Kimono, the iconic traditional Japanese robe, so easily definable by its simple straight seamed “T” shape, shows remarkable complexity in its craftsmanship, extreme versatility in its use, and dynamic ways of adapting to the evolution of taste and society.

Ever since its origins, the kimono (着物, literally translated in English as ‘thing to wear’) has been a blank canvas for the decorator to create a wearable piece of art.

The Kimono Monogatari – “Kimono Tales” exhibit will showcase stories weaved, embroidered, and dyed over a variety of vivid textiles, revealing the exceptional skills and aesthetic values of artists in the last century.”

Advanced ticket reservation is required. Free event with Gardens admission.
