Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB) arts and culture video producer and reporter Prakruti Bhatt covered Garden of Resonance: The Art of Jun Kaneko, a wide-scoping art exhibition in Portland Japanese Garden, open through February 20. In the piece, which includes interviews with the artist himself, Jun Kaneko, and our guest curator, Dr. Frank Feltens, the Japan Foundation associate curator of Japanese art at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art, Bhatt writes, “Kaneko’s structures carefully mingle with the green and auburn expanse of the garden.”
