Bonsai at The North Carolina Arboretum: More Than Meets the Eye

January 28, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Event Details


Bonsai is a much favored feature of the Arboretum’s identity, and not without reason. Visitors to the Bonsai Exhibition Garden marvel at the miniature trees and landscapes on display. The small scale of bonsai is certainly a key ingredient in the attention they attract, but at the Arboretum there is another, less obvious, element of interest, and it is hiding in plain sight.

Bonsai Curator Arthur Joura presents an in-depth look at bonsai at The North Carolina Arboretum in a new six-part series of online talks for Adult Education Programs. In the first installment, set for Thursday, January 28, at 4 p.m., Joura highlights exactly what makes our bonsai unique from any other public display to be found through a talk colorfully illustrated with a pleasing selection of popular specimens in our collection. If you are among the many who are enchanted by what you see in the Arboretum’s bonsai garden, you will want to experience this revealing glimpse of the philosophical foundation upon which our bonsai program is built. Join us in the coming months when Joura and special guests help us see “More Than Meets the Eye.”

Thursday, January 28; 4 to 5 p.m.
