Bonsai is a living art that is appreciated by people in every culture. World Bonsai Day is for sharing this peaceful art and advancing international friendship and goodwill throughout the world.

The exhibit will open on Saturday, May 12, 2018, at the Bonsai Pavilion, with a demonstration by bonsai artist Jennifer Price at 1 pm. A reception will follow at 3 pm. The exhibit will remain on view through Sunday, May 20, 2018.

The Bonsai Pavilion, which houses the collection of the Milwaukee Bonsai Society, is open to the public Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and by appointment, from May to October. Admission is free to members or with admission to the sculpture garden.

About Jennifer Price

Jennifer Price discovered bonsai eight years ago after retiring from the stage as a professional ballerina. She is struck by the line and form within bonsai and the ability to use the tree’s natural flow of movement. For the last several years she has been involved in an intensive study program with Walter Pall from Germany and Jim Doyle from Pennsylvania. She has taught workshops and given demonstrations worldwide and last year represented America at an international bonsai convention in Shanghai, China.
