Established in the Rokkakudo Temple in Kyoto, Japan over 1000 years ago, the Ikenobo School of Japanese Flower Arranging just celebrated its 550th year of written study. Ikenobo is considered the origin of all ikebana (flower arranging) and is based on the simple philosophy, "The life of a flower is very short." The school maintains a worldwide presence through local chapters and members who study and pursue "kado," the path of flowers. The Chicago Chapter in the Midwest has been studying and teaching this art form for over 50 years. This year’s Garfield Park Conservatory exhibition will show examples of the various forms of ikebana taught by the Ikenobo School.
