Speaker: Mary Witzum
The Ainu are the indigenous peoples of Japan. Historically, Ainu women protected their loved ones with created motifs. How did these ancient people create such intricate clothing with natural materials such as wood bark? Join the Asian Arts Council (AAC) study group as Mary Witzum presents an exploration of these enchanting works of art. The Ainu culture, Ainu textiles, and the Ainu community of today will be discussed.
Mary Witzum is a member of the AAC and AAC Study Group. She also serves as a docent at The San Diego Museum of Art.
