Beauty in Japanese Bamboo Art (Curator's Circle Lecture)

Designated as a “Living National Treasure” in 2012, Japanese bamboo artist Fujinuma Noboru gives his first public lecture outside of Japan since being awarded the prestigious title. He describes how he incorporates his ideas and energy into his artwork, several of which are displayed in Texture and Tradition: Japanese Woven Bamboo (closing July 28).

Doors open at 6:45 pm. Lecture at 7 pm, reception at 8 pm.

Free with museum admission, but reservations are required. Call 720-913-0040 or email
