We will visit the exhibition and meet the artist Jiro Yonezawa, a bamboo sculptural artisan. He apprenticed with the master artist Ono Makakatsu. His works have been shown in Japan, the U.S., and Europe, and are in many public and private collections. He is the recipient of many Japanese and international awards. One of his works was awarded the Lloyd Cotsen Prize, and his works have been collected by various museums in the U.S. We will have the unique opportunity of meeting him while he is visiting Berkeley and have him take us around the exhibition and talk about his work.
