Splendor in the Grass: Hōitsu & the Garden

Time: Saturday, October 6, 11 AM

Japanese art is famous for its sensitivity to the nuances of the seasons. Enjoy splendid examples of masterworks by Sakai Hōitsu with a 30-minute exhibition highlights tour focused on fall flowers and grasses. Afterwards enjoy seasonal refreshments of wagashi (Japanese sweets) and green tea before a shuttle bus ride to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s living autumnal display—the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, one of the oldest and most visited Japanese- inspired gardens outside Japan, and their Bonsai Museum.

Co-sponsored by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

  1. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
