Title: SBU: WANG: ORIGAMI ARTIST TALK: KUMI YAMASHITA
Description:

Artist Talk by Kumi Yamashita

Thursday, October 15, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Charles B. Wang Center Lecture Hall I

Free Admission!

Much of Kumi Yamashita's artwork begins with everyday objects such as building blocks, paper, numbers and thread. While employing these everyday objects, Ms. Yamashita transforms each one in something extraordinary. Ms. Yamashita will give an overview of her work and will discuss how she has recently been inspired by origami.
