Among the many new experiences that await visitors inside the Jordan Schnitzer Japanese Arts Learning Center is the beautifully designed Calvin and Mayho Tanabe Gallery. According to Arlene Schnitzer Curator of Culture, Art, and Education, Diane Durston, “While the Pavilion Gallery continues to host the seasonal Art in the Garden exhibitions as it has for the past ten years, a generous donation from Calvin and Mayho Tanabe provides us with an intimate space and endless possibilities to create more tightly focused exhibitions to be held year-round for the first time in our Garden’s history.”
