Ikebana is practiced today in places beyond Japan’s borders. In fact, the Asian Art Museum has a Flower Committee comprising a group of dedicated volunteers—practicing the Sogetsu style of ikebana—who create the dynamic floral arrangements that you see throughout the museum every week.

This video features a day in the life of one of the committee teams (featuring Naoko Fujimura and Ricardo Ramirez) as it brings the ancient art of ikebana to the twenty-first century. Discover artworks used for ikebana in the exhibition, Flower Power at the Asian Art Museum (June 23 to Oct. 1, 2017).
