Pokemon, anime, and Hello Kitty are just a few of the things we share with our friends in Japan! Explore how kawaii, the Japanese word for “cute”, is a driving force in fashion and art. Try your pen at calligraphy, learn to draw like an anime artist and pick up some Japanese words while enjoying our temporary exhibition Hello from Japan! Then enjoy an exciting Japanese drumming performance by Tsuasa Taiko Community Ensemble. Sponsored in part by Rockford Area Arts Council.
