The University of Saint Joseph will hold How Nature is Integrated with Arts in Japan, the next event in the “Embracing Our Environment: Integrating the Natural World with the Arts” series made possible by support from the University’s National Endowment of the Humanities and Art Fund.


The event will be held in-person on April 13, 2022, from11 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Crystal Room in Mercy Hall at University of Saint Joseph. This event is free and open to the public and registration is required.


This presentation will focus on how the environment is an integral part of Japanese culture and art. In Japanese art, nature plays a very central role. There is beauty in the harmony of imbalance, asymmetry, and imperfection of nature. Japanese art also portrays the interdependency of all living things with us. Toshiko Uchino is a representative of the Us & Japan Society of Connecticut, a group that coordinates a wide variety of cultural and environmental events.
