Animal and Plant Symbolism in Japanese Arts

Online program presented by the Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden

Tuesday, February 23, 5:00 pm. Free with registration

Plants and animals are replete with symbolic meanings and references to stories and poems in Japanese culture. This hidden dimension adds meaning to walks through gardens and visits to art galleries. Explore with us a selection of this symbolic content as expressed on the grounds of the Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden and in Japanese artworks.

Elizabeth Hammer Munemura is the Hammond Museum and Japanese Stroll Garden's Executive Director and studied East Asia at the College of William and Mary and Yale University. Previously she worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Christie’s.
