The Japanese Arts Foundation and International Museum of Surgical Science cordially invite you to their inaugural joint Kintsugi Gala. Experience an evening of fine Japanese cuisine, spirits, and artistic performances and activations with full access to the historic museum and its charm. Enjoy a special viewing of the new Kintsugi exhibition and explore the art of Kintsugi, or ‘gold repair’, through the work of Japanese Arts Foundation resident artist Mami Takahashi, who fuses human skulls with gold, bringing to life the philosophy of celebrating the beauty of broken cracks. This fundraising gala directly supports the efforts of the Japanese Arts Foundation and the International Museum of Surgical Science. Guests in attendance and at home are encouraged to participate in the virtual silent auction featuring gifts from over 50 partners.
