Kizuna: West Meets East

In 2012 Denver Botanic Gardens proudly unveils the new Bill Hosokawa Bonsai Pavilion and Tea Garden with an expanded Japanese Garden (Shofu-En). Kizuna, a Japanese word meaning “the bonds between people,” celebrates the profound influence Japan has had on the West with the presentation of site-specific bamboo installations by internationally-known artists Tetsunori Kawana and Stephen Talasnik. See this powerful and versatile natural material in a variety of forms, including living plant displays.
