“Mineo Mizuno: Harmony” at LACMA
August 12, 2019 • 8:00 am PDT
After Mineo Mizuno spent most of his life living and working in cities, he fled to the wilderness of the Sierra Nevadas in Northern California. The Japanese-born artist traded in masses of people for forests filled with pine, oak, and cedar trees, some hundreds of years old. His new installation on the Resnick Lawn at LACMA incorporates ceramics, fallen trees, and manzanita shrubs removed to avert fires. “Tea House” will stay put all summer, a play on the traditional Japanese structure that balances a need for seclusion with the presence of natural surroundings. Get a dose of the woods without leaving Los Angeles.
Open to the public anytime this summer.
