Kizuna: West Meets East

When: May 7-Nov. 4 2012

Bamboo has been praised since time immemorial, even said to embody qualities — "uprightness," "tenacity" — of a gentleman. Internationally known artists Tetsunori Kawana and Stephen Talasnik are putting it to work at the Denver Botanic Gardens (1007 York St., Denver, for Kizuna: West Meets East, an exhibit that runs through November. These site-specific installations showcase bamboo's versatility; sculptures whirl into a twisting tunnel, float as a delicate raft on a lake, or roll smoothly down a hill. Members get in free, and nonmember tickets run from $9 to $12.50. — Edie Adelstein
