Shofuso is proud to host a reception and exhibition to honor Ikebana International (I.I.) Philadelphia Chapter 71. Members of I.I. Chapter 71 generously provide Shofuso with beautiful ikebana arrangements every week, adding to the beauty of our historic site. This exhibition will run Friday, September 6 through Sunday, September 8 during regular open hours.
The annual Ikebana Exhibition expands on the weekly installations and is a floral extravaganza that fills the house and veranda with more arrangements than are ordinarily on display. In past years, I.I. Chapter 71 has also created site-specific ikebana in the garden! Practitioners of multiple schools of ikebana provide arrangements for visitors to appreciate as they move through the site.
