The Brush of Shoko Kanazawa

Tawaraya Sōtatsu, Wind and Thunder Gods, 18th century, Kyoto National Museum

April brings an exhibition of the calligraphic works of the renowned artist, Shoko Kanazawa. Born with Down syndrome, Kanazawa began studying calligraphy at the age of five to become one of Japan’s most acclaimed contemporary calligraphers. Showcasing her dramatic interpretation of the national treasure Wind and Thunder Gods by Tawaraya Sōtatsu, ca. 1570-ca. 1640, the exhibition provides a moving exploration of her emotion and poetry.

The Pavilion will be open at 9am Tuesdays-Sundays for members throughout the entire Exhibition.
