A Summer Bonsai Solstice
A night at the Museum! For one night only, we will stay open until 9 pm. Take in the LIGHT and beauty of bonsai in our woodsy setting. Go for a stroll, meet up with friends, snap a gorgeous photo, and breathe in the fresh summer air.
You can also peek over the shoulders of en plein air painters as they capture the golden light on bonsai from 4:30 – 7:30 pm. Kimberly Trowbridge, Director of the Modern Color Atelier at Gage Academy of Art, will be painting with students and alumni of her program, focusing on the method of color-blocking that she describes as, “a translation of perceptual experience into discrete shapes of color.”
Joining us will be ukulelist Arden Fujiwara, who will be strumming his way through our main exhibition space from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. Born and raised in Hawaii, Arden learned from ukulele masters Jake Shimabukuro and Troy Fernandez. Now based in Seattle, Arden breaks expectations and elevates the ukulele across new boundaries.
We’ll also have our Pop-up shop set up in the Pavilion with fun PBM items and books for sale. In addition, the ReRooted pop-up store will be here, where you can choose your succulent, choose your pot and decor, and pot your own succulent.
Free admission (with suggested donation of $12 for adults who are able to support the Museum).
Tuesday–Sunday 10am to 4pm
