Japan highlights summer at Myrtle Beach art museum

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) — A series of lectures and demonstrations focusing on Japanese themes are scheduled for Myrtle Beach.

The series of events opening Wednesday at the Burroughs and Chapin Art Museum include everything from Japanese paper sculpture to growing bonsai plants and Japanese tea ceremonies. The events continue through Sept. 23.

The events are a counterpart to the exhibition “Kimono: Art, Fashion and Society” which is being staged at the museum on the south end of Myrtle Beach this summer. The exhibit centers on the kimono as both a work of art and a fashion statement.
