We’re excited to announce that the EXPOSED: Japantown exhibit will be shown at this year’s Cherry Blossom and Japanese Cultural Festival! The event will be taking place at Seattle Center on April 25-27, 2014 and admission is free. You will find our exhibit in the upstairs “loft” area of the Armory.
The Festival was founded 39 Years ago in appreciation of 1,000 cherry trees gifted to Seattle by Prime Minister Takeo Miki on behalf of the Japanese government in commemoration of the nation’s bicentennial. Held at the Seattle Center every April, it began as a small program and exhibit of Japanese art as a way to celebrate Japanese culture and America’s relationship with Japan, the Festival is the first and oldest ethnic festival to be held at Seattle Center in the Seattle Center Festál series.
It is the largest public event demonstrating the breadth and depth of traditional and contemporary Japanese art and culture in the NW and British Columbia. With over 90 displays every year and over 30,000 attendees, we’re excited and thankful to the Festival Committee to let the photo contest be a part of the Festival!
Go enjoy the beauty of Japanese culture and another chance to see the EXPOSED: Japantown exhibit!
