February 13 - April 28, 2013
Join artist Junco Sato Pollack surrounded by her beautiful fabric installation for this unique stitching demonstration and meditation practice. Pollack explains that "In meditation, one releases all mundane thought and mental activity and focus lightly on the breath, on emptiness, the void, and observe the sub-conscious and super-conscious mind activity." Museum visitors will participate in this meditation by stitching wishes or mantras onto a piece of blank sutra fabric prepared by the artist, as act of meditation, and then pinning it onto the â€œCollective Mandala" intended to comemorate the second anniversary of the Japan Earth Quake of 3.11.2011.
The artist will be in the galleries during the first week of the exhibition:
