The de Young Museum
Saturday, December 13
Opening Reception in the Kimball Education Gallery
Celebrate the residency of Corinne Okada Takara with light refreshments, live music by solo guitarist Scott Perry, and a presentation featuring fashions by Colleen Quen.
Admission into the Kimball Education Gallery is free of charge.
In Rhythms and Space, Takara assembles recycled materials with a whimsical creativity into airy three-dimensional tapestries and wearable art, while presenting a visual footprint of diverse Asian cultures at home and in the Asian diaspora. Motifs pulled from the museum collection, along with visual patterns observed in the museum’s surroundings, are interwoven to form these tapestries. Visitors are encouraged to create a tapestry tile from wire, paper, produce netting, and other recycled materials collected on the museum grounds. These tiles will be linked together, forming a colorful, evolving wall hanging that invites one to reflect on the discards of everyday life and find the beauty in their rhythmic gatherings.

And how does this tie into a wedding blog? Well Corinne's more petite flowers can also be used as bridal headpieces. What a great option for brides who want something truly unique and original. Here her flower is paired with a veil from The Flirty Bride, custom, couture bridal accessories.
