DEKALB, IL.- The Northern Illinois University Art Museum presents “Ayomi Yoshida Installation,” from January 15 - March 7, 2008. The Japanese artist will be in residency for a month beginning in late December to install a large scale site-specific installation exploring the physical aspects of the woodblock printmaking process. During the final weeks of installation, beginning January 15, the gallery will be open to the public so that visitors may view the process in progress and engage directly with Yoshida and her spouse and primary installation assistant, Bidou Yamaguchi. The public is invited to the Gala Reception on Thursday, January 24, from 4:30 - 7:30 p.m. The Tsukasa Taiko Drummers will give a traditional Japanese drumming demonstration during the reception at 5:15 p.m. and again at 6:00 p.m. The Tsukasa Taiko drum ensemble will perform later that evening at 8 p.m. at Boutell Music Hall.
