Saturday - Solidarity with the People of Japan

Public Event: Be In Solidarity with the People of Japan
Free and open to the public.
Saturday, March 26 | 1 pm |
Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
(4525 Oak St., Kansas City, MO)
To recognize the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan and express support and sympathy, participants will meet in the Isamu Noguchi Sculpture Court. Twenty mats will be scattered around the court for meditation or thought, haiku poetry will be available to read aloud or silently, and long strips of paper will be provided to tie onto the trees in the Kansas City Sculpture Park. Inspired by the "wish trees" found in Japanese courtyards of Shinto shrines, in which slips of paper are hung on bamboo poles to release the ideas to the universe.
