Phoenix Art Museum says
Ikebana, literally "living flowers," is an ancient, disciplined art. Said to have begun in China, flower-arranging arrived in Japan with the introduction of Buddhism in the 6th century. Over time, the art form shed its religious mantle and came to be practiced by people from many levels of society. The strict rules and prescribed formal techniques that are a hallmark of most Japanese art forms serve as the foundation for the symbolic meanings inherent in ikebana, such as the unity of opposites and, ultimately, the harmonious balance between heaven, earth and humanity. Unlike the Western idea of floral arrangement as a collection of colorful blooms, ikebana accentuates other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, drawing emphasis toward shape, line and form, embracing the spare, poetic beauty of line.

Based in Kyoto, Ikenobō is the oldest and largest school of Ikebana in Japan.

The demonstration will be held in Whiteman Hall and the arrangement will be moved to Greenbaum lobby. Included with Museum general admission.
