Kimono exhibit at the Canton Museum of Art

Yesterday, Kelly and I went to the Canton Museum of Art to see Itchiku Kubota’s Kimono exhibit. Now, I knew that this was going to be amazing, as it seems to be the most important thing happening on Canton, with lots of Kimono-inspired art events happening all around downtown, but I was not prepared for how beautiful the show was. Even clicking on the link above to see some of the kimono in the exhibit won’t show you just how intricate each piece is.

The most amazing part of the exhibit is “Symphony of Light,” a 30-piece kimono landscape that takes the viewer from early autumn to late winter. Each of these kimono is gorgeous, but lined end-to-end, 360 degrees around the room, they make up one larger work. It was almost overwhelming.

It was a little pricey to get in (10 bucks a person), but it was worth it. If you live in the Canton area, or if the exhibit comes to your neck of the woods, don’t miss it.

In other news, the experience has inspired me to start the Haiku-a-Day project back up, starting tomorrow.
