1-Sep 18 - Transcending Forms: Japanese Bamboo Baskets - For thousands of years, Japanese farmers and artisans have plaited woody grasses of the bamboo family into practical containers.  Utilitarian and unsigned by their maker, these containers were used for fishing, winnowing or even flower display for the refined tea ceremony.  During the 1950s, a small number of bamboo artists moved beyond functional baskets to experiment with purely sculptural forms.  Drawing from works in the Morikami collection, this exhibition will trace the evolution of the humble Japanese bamboo basket from its agricultural beginnings to the revolutionary bamboo expressions of avant-garde artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. 561-495-0233, morikami.org

This exhibit will explore works from the artist’s Ukiyo-e (Pictures of the Floating World) series, which celebrates the high-fashion courtesans of Japan’s 18th and 19th century pleasure quarters. 561-495-0233, morikami.org

1- 18 - Transcending Forms: Japanese Bamboo Baskets - For thousands of years, Japanese farmers and artisans have plaited woody grasses of the bamboo family into practical containers.  Utilitarian and unsigned by their maker, these containers were used for fishing, winnowing or even flower display for the refined tea ceremony.  During the 1950s, a small number of bamboo artists moved beyond functional baskets to experiment with purely sculptural forms.  Drawing from works in the Morikami collection, this exhibition will trace the evolution of the humble Japanese bamboo basket from its agricultural beginnings to the revolutionary bamboo expressions of avant-garde artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. 561-495-0233, morikami.org

This exhibit will explore works from the artist’s Ukiyo-e (Pictures of the Floating World) series, which celebrates the high-fashion courtesans of Japan’s 18th and 19th century pleasure quarters. 561-495-0233, morikami.org

George Gershwin called him “the greatest song writer that has ever lived!” And when asked about Berlin’s “place” in American music, Jerome Kern famously replied, “Irving Berlin has no place in American music. He IS American music!” Because he wrote both for Broadway and Hollywood for over fifty years, it’s impossible to honor his contribution to American music in a single program. So our first program on Irving Berlin will focus on his Broadway career which began in 1908. 561-272-1281 Ext. 4, delraybeachplayhouse.com
