Japanese Garden to Host Presentation on “Kimono In Color: A Spectrum of Seasons”

Published: February 15, 2010

How the beauty of changing seasons is reflected in harmonious colors of kimono in ancient and modern Japanese culture is the topic of the Winter Lecture titled “Kimono in Color: A Spectrum of Seasons,” presented by CSULB’s Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden.

The program takes place Friday, Feb. 26, in the Daniel Recital Hall on the CSULB campus. Light refreshments will be served at 7 p.m. followed by the program at 7:30.

Kimono will be displayed and Alison Redfoot-DiLiddo, the garden’s assistant director for education, will discuss examples of color use in kimono, the imagery of the four seasons based on the garden’s kimono collection and the garden itself, as well as her research into this topic.

Admission is free to members of the Friends of the Japanese Garden and $10 for non-members. Seating is limited and reservations are required by calling the garden’s Education Department at 562/985-8420.
