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 Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB).
The program will take place Friday, Feb. 26, in the Daniel Recital Hall on the CSULB campus. Light refreshments will be served at 7pm followed by a program at 7:30pm.
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. Reservations are required and can be made by calling the garden’s Education Department at (562) 985-8420.
