The Ikebana Show: Open Through Sunday Only!

It comes but once every two years, and in a few days it’ll be gone again: the 15th Biennial Ikebana Exhibit is here!

This brief, popular exhibit combines the Japanese art of flower arranging with artwork from Art League and Torpedo Factory artists. You can hear two of the Ikebana artists from the Sogetsu School of DC discuss their art in the video above.

As part of the show, there are two free events this weekend in the Gallery:
