Tanabata: Japan’s Star Festival

Views of Tanabata In São Paulo, Brazil by Jade Matarazzo
June 4 – September 15, 2013

In honor of Tanabata, Morikami Museum features a selection of photographs by Jade Matarazzo, who captured the faces of the Tanabata festival as it is celebrated in São Paulo, Brazil, home to the largest Japanese community outside of Japan. The exhibit was inspired by “West Encounters East,” a PBS documentary by Executive Producer Stella M. Holmes that focuses on Japanese Brazilians.
