GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Frederick Meijer Gardens is opening a new exhibit featuring iconic Japanese art.
“Splendors of Shiga: Treasures from Japan” exhibit opens to the public on Friday and features more than 75 iconic works of art, most of which have never been seen outside of Japan.
Some of the items on display include hand-painted scrolls, centuries-old Buddhist statues, ancient kimonos and pottery.
The exhibition features works from three different seasons from Michigan’s sister state, Shiga.
The exhibit coincides with the opening of The Richard & Helen DeVos Japanese Garden this summer.
