Art Deco in Japan at Brigham Young University MoA

 At the BYU Museum of Art there's two Japanese Culture themed exhibits taking place:

DECO JAPAN: Shaping Art and Culture 1920-1945
Running from February 12-July 18, 2015.


 Folding Paper: The Infinite Possibilities of Origami
Running from January 29-June 20, 2015

Both are Free.  Visitor parking is free.

 The pictures in this blog post are from the Art Deco exhibit.  I've always been fascinated by Art Deco design and shapes.  So unique.  And it's amazing seeing how the Art Deco movement influenced Japan.

 Beautiful glass work.

 I love the square shapes in this bowl.

 This is my favorite piece in the exhibit.  I would love a replica of this box.

 This rabbit was my Dad's favorite piece.

 A sleek Phoenix.

This last picture, which is not apart of the Art Deco exhibit, is an art instillation by Gabriel Dawe called Plexus No. 29.  It's found in the BYU MoA (museum of art) lobby, and will be there through 2016.  It's really cool in person.
