Bamboo Installation and Bamboo Art at Metropolitan Museum

Hata Sensei mentioned several months ago that the Metropolitan Museum was having an exhibit and installation of bamboo art. The exhibit would also feature an arrangement by Hata Sensei in one of the baskets being shown. The last weekend of January, my husband and I were able to make the trip to the museum with our daughter who lives in Brooklyn. The artistry using bamboo was magnificent. We saw many unique and skillfully woven baskets made by Japanese that were close to 100 years old as well as many modern pieces. They were unbelievably beautiful.
