In April of every year, in collaboration with the U.S. National Arboretum, I.I. Chapter No.1 puts on an exhibit for the public and the Chapter’s members prepare magnificent arrangements and free workshops.
For a second year, due to Covid, this year’s exhibit will be different, but the show goes on! As always, the Exhibit will be free and open to the public. However, this year’s plan is to have two exhibits, one in April and another in June 2022.
The April Exhibit will be an outdoor exhibit of large arrangements made by groups of ikebana artists over two weekends in April, April 8 – 10 and April 16-18. Each week’s arrangements will be different. These arrangements will be on display in the North Court of the Visitor’s Center. Through QR codes which you can scan on your smartphone, you can listen to the artists speaking about their arrangements and their Schools of Ikebana.
The June Exhibit will follow our traditional format. Many individual arrangements showing the different styles and concepts from seven schools of Ikebana will be on display. Hosts will be available to guide visitors through the exhibit and answer questions. This exhibit will be indoors at the Bonsai & Penjing Museum.
You will find detailed information on this page and also on the USNA website under Calendar of Events.
