Gallery Talk: What is Obon?

August 21 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Every year Buddhist communities in Japan and America come together in a summer festival called Obon. Obon is a time for us to remember all those who have passed before us. As a part of the festivities, we dance a mixture of traditional and modern Japanese dances to welcome back all of those who have gone before us. Please join us as we explore the Buddhist and Japanese culture surrounding this summer festival and enjoy our current exhibit on Bon Odori.  $5 donation if you are able.
