Join us in celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana at Wave Hill. Ikebana is the Japanese tradition of flower arranging, and Sogetsu, founded in 1927, is an avant garde style, with study groups all over the world. A famous saying by founder Sofu Teshigahara—and the credo of the Sogetsu school—is that Sogetsu can be done by anyone, anywhere, anytime with any kind of material. View beautiful works of art in an exhibition featuring arrangements, courtesy of the New York Branch of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana. Attend a live demonstration by Sogetsu instructors, and stop by The Shop at Wave Hill for a special promotion on ikebana-related titles.
Registration not required. Free, and admission to the grounds is free until noon.
