Pgh Bonsai Society Presents Blends Eco Art & Tech @ GA/GI

Bloomfield/Garfield Community Center

The Pittsburgh Bonsai Society, 59 years old, will be presenting bonsai demonstrations, and a small exhibition of their amazing "little

trees" for GA/GI visitors at the Bloomfield Garfield Corporation's Community Center (113 N. Pacific Ave) The Society offers classes, bonsai tree growing tips and how to best preserve these trees, which are for many living legends, in some cases surviving through generations. Come and learn about a beautiful art form that combines horticulture with Asian art principles.

This event will also feature the sounds of Steve Sciullii, a Japanese music expert, who will be preforming a set called "Plant sonification in the data garden." Steve will play the shakuhachi, a traditional bamboo flute to the sounds of plants, through electronic devices. This is a wonderful evening to learn, do and see. Bring everyone to this free, family-friendly event on Friday May 6, at GA/GI at Unblurred.  (Check on other great GA/GI events in our events schedule tab.)
