Small heads up, I am going to be hosting a guest lecture at the Toledo Museum of Art about the evolution and art of the Japanese Kimono and textiles. It’s a free discussion and will cover many historical social topics.
Free Presentation: The Art of the Japanese Kimono
February 18: 7 p.m., Little Theater
Kerry Porter, a collector of authentic Japanese kimono, discusses the evolution of Japanese textiles and the wide variety of arts used to decorate them. Textile techniques such as shibori and yuzen will be on display, and a kimono will be available to try on.
