I have a friend in DC right now and I just pray she went to this Jakuchu exhibit at the National Gallery of Art. It has never been exhibited outside of Japan until now...WOW. It's in DC for a month. I've had the honor of spending time in Kyoto where the artist lived & found inspiration for these works. There are no words to describe the Kyoto experience...you just have to be there....it is Zen
Cool Fact: Banksy's 23-foot high Stained Window piece (first image in this post) is a collaboration with the City of Angels public school in Los Angeles. Students were encouraged to write tags on panels erected in their schoolyard before Banksy adapted them.
