“Martial” Is the Kind of Art We Like

The code of the Samurai says that “there is surely nothing other than the single purpose of the present moment.” Dallas is taking a moment to celebrate the history and culture of the ancient warrior-poet class of feudal Japan with Matsuri! A Samurai Celebration. The event is being held June, 21 at the Kimbell Art Museum and will feature a traditional processional of the mikoshi shrine graciously donated from Nagaoka, Japan. Bring the whole family for a night of culture and fun with musical guests Sarah Jaffe, Air Review and a traditional drum, flute, dance performances straight from the land of the rising sun. During the event guests can check out the Kimball's current exhibition Samurai: Armor from the Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Collection, as well as martial arts demonstrations and much more. For a complete list of events and details check outkimbellart.org. The event goes from 1 to 10 p.m. and is free to the public. Bring the family and a blanket and enjoy the present while celebrating the past.
