Celebrating Japanese Traditions at Bellevue Art Museum FREE First Friday!

  • Jan 4, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come join us for the Celebrating Japanese Traditions event at BAM.  Held in conjunction with Free First Friday, experience the Modern Twist: Contemporary Japanese Bamboo Art exhibit and Yuri Kinoshita's tea house, and explore the various traditions of Japanese culture from literary and illustrative to architectural and spiritual. Ongoing, interactive activities will be held all day in the Museum Forum and Auditorium*.

Afterward let's really make this an evening out and head out for late night eats and drinks (post comments if you'd like to meet beforehand as well).  There are lots of choices!

Also on View:
Nikki McClure: Cutting Her Own Path, 1996 – 2012 | November 13, 2012 - February 3, 2013
BAM Biennial 2012: High Fiber Diet | October 25, 2012 - February 24, 2013

How to find us: We usually meet in the lobby (either at the center bench or the reception desk).  If you arrive late, the museum is not to large for you to find us.  While I can read comments posted on my phone, I cannot reply to them away from my computer.  Please email me via Meetup (click my photo/name) so I can reply to you.

Parking: There is free/validated parking all around, including a garage at the museum.  However if you plan to stay out, I'd advise parking elsewhere since that garage closes around 8:30pm (see BAM site for exact details).

This is a limited multi-Meetup event.  Be sure to know which group you're in and your host's name - also see my photo. ~Claudette

    Oops, forgot to update the pre-set time when setting up this meetup. We are actually meeting at 6:30pm, not 7pm, to give us 90 mins at the museum. If you can get there at the earlier time - great! If not, just look for me and the group on the upper levels. See the note on "how to find us" in the event details.
