Japanese Design: Art, Aesthetics & Culture with Dr. Patricia J. Graham
Feb 18, 2015, 6:30pm
Singer Hall
Simply put, Japanese design is a significant contribution to world cultural heritage. What exactly is the singular attraction of Japanese design? Why does it speak so clearly to so many people all over the world? The Japanese sensibility often possesses an intuitive, emotional appeal, whether it is a silk kimono, a carefully raked garden path, a teapot, or a contemporary work of art. In her just-published book, Dr. Patricia Graham explains how this aesthetic based in fine craftsmanship and simplicity developed.
