The San Diego Museum of Art unveils its highly-anticipated public art project: "Art of the Open Air."

12/01/2017 - Discussion: Krampus Comes to New Americans Museum
Could Krampus be a New American? This creature of European holiday folklore is popular in the Alpine regions of Europe and is celebrated with Krampus Parades on the fifth of December: the day before St. Nicholas's Feast Day.

Krampus customs have recently been adopted in Southern California and on December 1, the Krampus will be visiting NAM during Friday Night Liberty!

We are very excited to be hosting the Krampus expert, Al Ridenour: Executive Director of Krampus Los Angeles and author of The Krampus and the Old, Dark Christmas: Roots and Rebirth of the Folkloric Devil.

Mr. Ridenour will be sharing with us the origins and traditions of this European "Christmas devil," and the work of Krampus Los Angeles--the first troupe of its kind to bring the Krampus to Southern California. The evening will be highlighted by a visit from the Krampus himself!

11/11/2017 - Intrinsic Matter: Opening Reception
The Japanese Friendship Garden is proud to have both Sammy Seung-min Lee and Kazu Oba as the latest exhibitors in the Inamori Pavilion. Lee and Oba bring their native traditions to contemporary art forms. Lee practices Joomchi, a technique from Korea that manipulates and felts mulberry paper. Oba practices traditional Japanese ceramic pattern and gravitates more towards utsuwa. Utsuwa translates to vessel in English and Oba considers his vessels incomplete until they are properly used. The reception will be held at JFG's Inamori Pavilion where guests will be able to meet both artists, enjoy hors d'oeuvres and beverages, and get a first hand look at JFG's latest exhibit. Sammy Seung-min Lee will also be holding a felting and casting workshop the same day from 11 am to 4 :00 PM. During this workshop, attendees will learn the same techniques Lee uses when working with hanji, Korean mulberry paper. RSVP: registrar@niwa.org.
