japanese fashion exhibit: stylized sculpture

i don't think i've ever been to the asian art museum. my first excuse to myself is that i'm not sure i'd love it, but that's probably rubbish; there are undoubtedly exhibits that would capture my interest. so this new exhibit is going to be the prod that gets me over to the museum.

The garments—borrowed from the Kyoto Costume Institute, one of the world's leading repositories of haute couture—date from 1983 to 2007, and include a range of materials and methods from various seasons...all "with textures, colors, and shapes worthy of definition as sculpture."

the museum, which is located on the civic center plaza, is only $5 on thursdays after 5pm. perfect!
