Donation for $1,000 to Dublin Arts Council: Dublin Arts Council Seeks Dublin Foundation Support for Japanese Culture

Jun 1, 2008 | Archive, Arts & Culture, Dublin Community Other, Education and Youth development

The Japanese population of Dublin has been supportive to the Dublin Arts Council through many programs over the years. The DAC wanted to give back to the Japanese community by way of an exhibit featuring the internationally renowned master contemporary Japanese ceramist Masayuki Miyajima. Masayuki is well known for creating handmade pottery in the Mingei folk craft tradition.

The exhibit opened on November 11, 2009, and continued through December 19, 2009.  During the exhibit, people could speak with Miyajima about his artistic approach. The Dublin Arts Council attracted more than 200 visitors to the exhibit, further opening the path to exploring fine art and culture in the community. Since this exhibit, the artistic talent the DAC represents has continued to grow. Dublin has become a well-known visual arts presenter, and hopes to continue their future journeys with the support of the Dublin Foundation.
