Japanese Style Living Environment Webinar Series: Worlds Within Rocks/Rocks Within Worlds

Time & Location

November 21, 1pm EST / 10am PST
Online (Zoom)


Oakland Fukuoka Sister City Association presents the Japanese Style Living Environment Webinar Series.

For thousands of years, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese collectors have sought out stones sculptured by nature that possess two highly prized qualities: beauty and a suggestive shape, such as a mountain, island, plateau, cove, or cliff. In this session, Dr. Vincent Covello will present how rocks, as suggestive objects, play a role in people’s aesthetic, emotional, and intellectual lives. Dr. Covello is an expert on Asian art and the aesthetics of rocks.

RSVP here.

The webinar series is supported through the CGP Japanese Gardens Microgrant program.
