The Shiawassee Arts Center is offering a tour via Indian Trails motorcoach to the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids on Friday, July 24th, 2015.

A guided 45 minute tour will be included of the special exhibit Splendors of Shiga: Treasures from Japan, which displays more than 60 Japanese works of art from the 8th century to the present day. This unique exhibition is a partnership with Shiga, our sister state in Japan. From shigaraki pottery, to more delicate scrolls, screens, kimono, and functional objects, works on paper and in wood will change every two months, protecting the artifacts while providing guests with a new view of the exhibition. These rare objects follow one of several themes: the landscape of Shiga, beauty in daily life, the four seasons, portraiture, animals and birds, devotional imagery, among others. A video on Shiga, its art and culture, will play continuously and maps and other information about Shiga will be available to guests.

After the tour everyone is own their own and can lunch on-site at the museum cafeteria and visit other on-site galleries, gardens and the gift shop. The motorcoach leaves from the Shiawassee Arts Center, 206 Curwood Castle Drive in Owosso, at 9am and returns to Owosso at 5pm. Cost is $40 for SAC members and $45 for non-members. Membership is available to all interested at various levels with benefits. Call for more information or to make a reservation by July 10th, (989) 723.8354 or visit www.shiawasseearts.org.
