Flowers of the Four Seasons

A dazzling array of Japan's greatest artistic traditions from ancient to modern will be presented in BAM/PFA's major fall exhibition, Flowers of the Four Seasons: Ten Centuries of Art from the Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture. The Clark Center of Hanford, California, and the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive will collaborate in bringing one of the most significant collections of Japanese art in America to the Bay Area with a presentation of more than 100 works of art.

The exhibition will cover the broad collecting interests of the center's founder, fourth-generation San Joaquin Valley resident Willard Clark, whose passion for Japan's art and culture has resulted in a collection representing all major areas of artistic endeavor, with dates ranging from the late Heian period to the 21st century. Selections from the collection will be organized thematically, addressing topics of Buddhist art, literati painting, the natural environment, everyday life, bamboo sculpture, and contemporary ceramics, as well as works that celebrate a uniquely Japanese sense of humor.
