- Greetings from the Midwest, USA. We have been busy with
exhibition plans! Mr. Kuroda and I will exhibit from September 10
to October 22 in Chicago at the Japan Information Center of the
Japan Consulate. Ancillary events are also in the works which
will include workshops at two Chicago Public High Schools.
Photos and artwork from the workshops will be on display in the
administration building lobby of the CPS at 125 S. Clark St. in
downtown Chicago at a later date. This will also include a
display of how to create traditional Suminagashi and Mr.
Kuroda's Suimonga technique. Still in the works is a trip to the
Japan House of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
for demonstrations and possibly a workshop while Mr. Kuroda
visits the USA. If you will be in the Chicago area during the
exhibition dates, please stop by the JIC at 737 N. Michigan (enter
on Chicago Ave). Further info and hours will be posted on the
Japan Information Center Web Site as the exhibition date nears.
