Member Opening Reception
The opening reception for our new exhibition Reflections of Beauty: Women from Japan’s Floating World was held on Thursday March 9, 2006. More than 300 members and guests enjoyed the delicious food provided by Japon Bistro and tasted sake which was generously supplied by Hakutsuru Sake Brewing Co. The event was sponsored by the Consulate General of Japan in Los Angeles.
Acting Consul General Masahiro Kohara was on hand to give a few words of welcome and Ken Brown, curator of the new exhibition, introduced the show. The evening was made even more memorable by the presentation of three models wearing the kimono-inspired gowns created by world renowned designer, Tadashi. The models acted as “walking art” as they moved through the exhibition and interacted with the crowd, representing real life reflections of beauty.
