Michael Kenna's retrospective at Tacoma Art Museum

Tacoma - The large Michael Kenna's retrospective "Memories and Meditations" is on show at the Tacoma Art Museum through March 24. Michael Kenna has been capturing the ethereal essence of locations across the globe for more than 30 years. The exhibition explores Kenna’s ongoing investigations of everything from the natural beauty of an island among Eastern countries to the haunting shadows of abandoned buildings in the midwest of the United States. The author is known to frequently return to certain locales in order to record them over the course of several years to capture the brilliance of time passing and memory. His wonder at the alchemy of printmaking translates into a wonderland of visual poetry. The show is enriched by the symposium The Art of Reconciliation and the Holocaust taking place on March 16. Here you can listen the audio guide to the exhibition.
