JANM Free Family Days: We Love LA
November 11, 2017 • 11:00 am PST
In conjunction with Transpacific Borderlands: The Art of Japanese Diaspora in Lima, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and São Paulo, JANM presents a family-friendly day celebrating the diverse mix of cultures that make up Los Angeles.
ALL DAY ACTIVITIES:
- Springtime in Japan
Create your own cherry blossom mobile to hang in your home, inspired by Prunusplastus, Erica Kaminishi’s stunning homage to Japan’s famous cherry blossom season.
- Lunchbox Style
What pictures or designs would you put on your lunchbox? Take a look at Shizu Saldamando’s cool drawings of her friends’ lunchboxes, then decorate a box that reflects your own style!
- Coloring Station
Artists like Eduardo Tokeshi and Yuriko Rojas Moriyamause flags in their work as a commentary on identity. Design a flag that represents your identity while learning more about the flag of the City of Los Angeles.
- Ruthie’s Origami Corner
In honor of Dia de los Muertos (Mexico’s Day of the Dead), learn to fold origami calaveras (decorative skulls) and embellish them.
- It’s Veterans Day!
Celebrate by writing a note of appreciation to a veteran, which JANM will deliver to the nearby VA Los Angeles Ambulatory Care Center.
