Exhibit Opening Day, Elements of Design

‘Cool!”, ‘Beautiful!,’ ‘Amazing!’: bonsai have universal appeal. But why? What makes them so beautiful? You are invited to experience our 2018 special exhibit, Living Art of Bonsai: Elements of Design, in which we’ll break down major design elements of bonsai art—line, shape, form, space, color, and

texture—and explore each element in detail. See how these design elements appear in bonsai, in trees, and in other works of art. Explore the exhibit and discover things you may not have seen before. Exhibit runs April 21 to September 30, 2018.
