Kimono as Art celebrates Itchiku Kubota's reverence for nature

In the fall of 2008 and winter of 2009, an exhibition of 40 giant landscape kimono of Japanese Master Itchiku Kubota is coming to the United States for only the second time.

Kimono as Art: The Landscapes of Itchiku Kubota will travel to Canton, Ohio, February 8-April 26, 2009, after a stop at the Timken Museum of Art and San Diego Art Museum in San Diego, California.

Featured in the kimono exhibit will be the panoramic tapestry Symphony of Light made up of 30 kimono, plus 10 other kimono celebrating Kubota's reverence for nature.

Sponsored by the Timken Foundation of Canton and presented by the Canton Museum of Art, in cooperation with ArtsinStark- the County Art Council, the 12-week celebration will include the kimono exhibit as well as many cultural events open to the community.

"The Kimono exhibit is a rare and special opportunity for our community to be able to view some of the greatest textile works of the 20th century," said M.J. Albacete, Executive Director of the Canton Museum of Art. "We are incredibly grateful to the Kubota family and the Timken Foundation for making this event possible."

Kimono is more than a Japanese kimono display of the works of an internationally acclaimed artist and creative genius. It is the dramatic story of one man's life-long passion, overcoming war and poverty, in search of the secret behind the lost textile process called Tsujigahana (Tsu-jee-ga-ha-na).

Kubota has won international acclaim for his creativity and dedication to this extraordinarily laborious craft that requires a full year for each kimono to come into being.
