Opening Reception: Crossroads: An Occasion for Friendship

Friday, June 22, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Some twenty-seven years ago, Masaya Imanishi of Nara City, Japan, became a Japanese Ministry of Culture awardee, affording him the opportunity to spend a year as visiting artist wherever he chose in the world. At the recommendations of a mutual friend, Toshiko Takaezu, Professors Dan Anderson and Paul Dresang welcomed Masaya and his young family to SIU-Edwardsville. Masaya was very quickly befriended by Richard Wehrs, then a first-year grad student from Minnesota and then later by Dan Barnett (BFA student). Our shared experiences at SIUE led to a deep friendship which has only grown over the years.
