What: The Tenri Cultural Institute is thrilled to announce the solo exhibition of Nobuko Tsuruta. Tsuruta is a Japanese fiber artist that has been weaving Saori for 12 years. Her work ranges from beautifully simple weaves to wildly experimental works incorporating materials like wire, plastic, grass, and silk. Saori is a contemporary Japanese hand weaving technique that emphasizes free expression. Each piece is unique and her skill level elevates the craft to an art. Tsuruta says that her “own vanity, ego, competitiveness, and pessimism” are reflected in her lively works. The artist gathers inspiration from her materials to create colorful and intricate masterpieces.
About the Artist, Nobuko Tsuruta: Nobuko Tsuruta was born in Kamakura City and lived right in front of Kanagawa Modern Museum.

Hippo Ballerina comes to NYC

What: Tuesday, February 7, the Hippo Ballerina sculpture will make its debut at NYC’s Dante Park. The little strip of land at 64th Street and Broadway (across the street from Lincoln Center) will be the hippo’s home through July 31. Yes, a night at the ballet with a pre-show hippo selfie is definitely in order.

Hippo Ballerina is the creation of Danish artist Bjørn Okholm Skaarup, and the sculpture installation is a partnership with Art in the Parks, a program of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation.

It’s understandable why she’s parked outside of the David H. Koch Theater instead of dancing on its stage. This hippo stands at more the 15 feet tall, and weighs upwards of 2.5 tons. Just think of how difficult it would be to find her a suitable male partner.

In addition to its proximity to Lincoln Center, Hippo Ballerina pays homage to two dance greats: the brigade of ballet hippos in Walt Disney’s beloved Fantasia, and Degas’ famous statue, Little Dancer Aged Fourteen.

When you stop by the statue, be sure to post a pic of yourself sashaying with Hippo Ballerina on Instagram. Use the hashtag #dancewithhippoballerina, and you could win a limited-edition etching of Hippo Tightrope Dancer by the artist and a pair of tickets to the ballet. See you at Lincoln Center!

When: Tuesday, February 7 - Noon
