Walters Enthusiasts Taste & Tour

 

All attendees must be 21 or over.

Join the Walters Enthusiasts for a perfect pairing of Japanese art and sake.

Chief Curator Robert Mintz will lead a tour of Designed for Flowers: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics, which explores contemporary interpretations of ancient Japanese traditions. Inspired in part by Japan's distinctive ikebana flower arranging styles, the extraordinary ceramics on display exist in unique harmony with these floral traditions.

To further your discovery of Japanese culture and tradition, the tour will be accompanied by a tasting of a selection of Japanese sake.
