Kimono Exhibit in Utica

The Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute in downtown Utica is currently exhibiting Kimono! The Artistry of Itchiku Kubota, which features 48 magnificent handcrafted pictorial kimono created by internationally recognized artist Itchiku Kubota (Japanese, 1917-2003). Kubota’s immeasurable creative spirit transformed traditional Japanese garments into works of art. Each of the kimono in the exhibition is nearly seven feet in height and embellished with intricate detailing created through complex dyeing techniques and embroidery, accented by gold and silver leaf and hand painting. Many of the kimono were conceived as a series and are installed together to create panoramic vistas manifesting Kubota’s reverence for terrestrial and cosmic landscapes.

See the museum's website for hours, location and special events associated with the exhibit. The show closes on September 16.
