Deconstructed Kimonos

November 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

JASC - Deconstructed Kimonos online event

About the Event

Japanese American artist Na Omi Shintani explores her heritage and loss of it through altering and honoring kimonos.

The process of deconstruction is a sacred and meditative act with striking and sometimes shocking results.

Na Omi has previously presented to the Society’s audience, “From Oysters to Barbed Wire”.

About the Speaker

Na Omi Judy Shintani’s art focuses on remembrance, connection, and storytelling. She makes assemblages, produces installations, creates performances, and facilitates social engagement activities to generate visual stories that bring vital issues to light.

She was awarded the Peninsula Arts Council 2012 Award for donor support for her Coastside Artists for Doctors Without Borders project. She speaks about Japanese American Art and historical trauma at venues including SF State, De Anza College, ArtXchange in Seattle, Center for Contemporary for Art Santa Fe, and 516 Arts in Albuquerque.

In addition to making art, Shintani owns and runs the Kitsune Community Art Studio in an old dairy barn in Half Moon Bay. She is a member of the Asian American Women’s Artist Association and the Northern California Women’s Caucus for Art.
