Asia Society Texas Center presents Creation Station: Three Friends of Winter
Bamboo, pine, and plum blossoms appear throughout Asian art as symbols of perseverance and resilience. As a group, they are known as the Three Friends of Winter because they flourish in the cold, unlike other plants and flowers that wither until spring. They are also associated with the beginning of the New Year and are seen on cards or other decorations. Participants in this Creation Station will see examples of this motif in a variety of Asian art and create their own craft projects inspired by these three durable plants.
This program complements Asia Society Texas Center's "Modern Twist: Contemporary Japanese Bamboo Art" exhibition.
