Looking ahead: Hisae Kimura Yale

  • Part of Hisae Kimura Yale's "Hiroshima"

"Hiroshima," the thesis exhibit of University of Arkansas Fayetteville graduate student Hisae Kimura Yale, opens March 28 in the Fine Arts Center. The exhibit combines sculpture and installation art to express Yale's thinking about the 1945 bombing of Hiroshima, where she was born, and the coincidentally quite topical issue (thanks to the aftermath of the March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Japan) of nuclear technology. (The actual title of the exhibit can't be posted here because it uses Japanese characters the website won't pick up. Hiroshima can be spelled four ways in Japanese, according to a UA press release; the one in the exhibit is the one specific to Hiroshima bombed.)

A reception for the artist will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. March 31. The University of Arkansas’s Japanese Student Association and the American Red Cross will take donations to aid the victims of Japan's earthquake and tsunami.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
