I normally don’t do a post on exhibits and stuff but if you live in the Bay Area or plan to visit San Francisco in the next 3 months, go visit Asian Art Museum for their Samurai Exhibit!
The curator of the exhibit, Yoko Woodson, who was one of the biggest supporters of the Totoro Forest Project auction, generously invited TFP committees and their significant others, plus James Jean and his wife Wen to the exhibition gala. (James was also invited because Asian Art Museum bought his painting from the Totoro Auction and they added a few other pieces from James to their permanent collections! whoo hoo!)
Anyhow, it is a great show! You can see the wood swords used by Musashi Miyamoto!
At the invitationi only exhibition gala. With Ronnie, Tess, Marit, Enrico, me, Mei, Wen, James, Yukino, and Pang!
