World War Bonsai: Remembrance & Resilience
Pacific Bonsai Museum’s special exhibition for 2020, World War Bonsai: Remembrance & Resilience, traces the cultural practice of bonsai in location and time—in Japan and in the United States, from the pre-war WWII period, through wartime, amid incarceration, and at peace. With bonsai, artifacts, documents, and photographs, the exhibition shares the little-known stories of the people who ingeniously and courageously cared for bonsai, shared their art, and spurred a flourishing, global practice despite overwhelming hardships. Exhibition dates TBA. Please check back!
