2018 / Michigan/ Japanese Calligraphy from Shiga Exhibition at Ann Arbor District Library in Michigan, Aug 19 – Oct 13

About the Exhibition

The State of Michigan and Japan’s Shiga Prefecture are tied together by the lake connection: the Great Lakes in Michigan and Lake Biwa in Shiga. In 1968, both governors signed a sister-state agreement, and 2018 marks  the 50th anniversary of this special relationship.

This exhibit is brought to Michigan by the Shiga Calligraphy Association and will showcase over 140 works of calligraphy produced by members of all ages and skill levels.
