ARTECHOUSE DC celebrates the cherry blossom season and women in the arts with Hanami: Beyond the Blooms, inviting visitors to enter an immersive world of spring re-imagined.
**After Hour Sessions start at 6pm for visitors ages 21+ only**
Current Exhibit: Hunami – Beyond the Blooms
Hanami: Beyond the Blooms pushes the limits of the cherry blossom experience, inviting visitors to enter an immersive world of spring re-imagined. Now an annual tradition, ARTECHOUSE’s cherry blossom-inspired installation continues to celebrate springtime and women in the arts and tech. This seasonal installation continues the 2020 ARTECHOUSE theme of exploring the role of science in art and technology.
The centuries-old Japanese custom of blossom viewing takes on a whole new abstract interpretive meaning as hand-made ink illustrations by Yuko Shimizu are transformed digitally to follow vibrant cherry blossom flowers on an exciting and interactive journey through land, sea, and air.
Please note Artechouse’s space has reflective floors that contribute to the overall visual experience. All guests will be given foot covers to wear. Guests wearing shoes with heels will be asked to remove the shoes before putting on the foot covers. This is a mandatory procedure.
Due to the complex technology employed, the installation may require unplanned maintenance; this may result in delays for visitors or in the cancellation of a visit. If it is not possible to reschedule a delayed or cancelled visit, a full refund will be issued.
Participants thought to be unstable or under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be admitted.
