The D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities is preparing a new exhibition for the 200 I Street Gallery to celebrate the National Cherry Blossom Festival. As part of the upcoming exhibition, Japanese artist Yuriko Yamaguchi will create a special blossom-like sculpture made up of the hand-written wishes and prayers of every person that visits 200 I Street, SE. This sculpture will hang in the gallery from March 22nd to June 30th.
During the exhibition, visit the work write a prayer or wish for yourself, your family/friends, or for humanity. You can create as many filter prayers/wishes as they like.
On Monday, March 18th, Yamaguchi will sit in the Gallery to create a suspended sculpture made of thousands of your hand-written prayers/wishes.
This sculpture will represent our collective hopes, dreams, wishes and prayers. As a community, we hope that we all can share in the creation of a unique sculpture made to bring us together in art.
