Congenial Spirits: Reflection

In the wake of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, a special installation of works by Japanese artists Kenzo Okada, Chuta Kimura, and Isamu Noguchi has been placed in our galleries. Sit, take a moment of personal reflection and remembrance, and leave your message of hope and support. One visitor writes:

Your resilience is an inspiration
to us all
who hold you in our prayers.
May all be well with you, and may happiness be on your side.

We’ll deliver a book of your thoughts  to Ambassador Fujisaki.
