The Alabama Asian Cultures Foundation (AACF), in partnership with Japan-America Society of Alabama (JASA), and Birmingham Botanical Gardens (BBG), is proud to announce a free exhibition of exquisite photo panels of the fourteen UNESCO Japanese World Heritage Sites. These breathtaking cultural features and natural areas are globally unique in their beauty, importance, and value.
This historic exhibition of more than 67 panels and one map, titled “Birmingham’s Exhibition of World Heritage Photo Panels : Insights into the Soul of Japan,” is made possible by a loan of materials to Alabama Asian Cultures Foundation by the Japan Foundation. The exhibition will open on Friday, October 12, 2012, with a reception sponsored by the AACF and JASA from 5 – 6 P.M. in the pavilion in the Japanese Gardens in Birmingham. A ribbon cutting ceremony opening the photo panels display will be held following the reception, in the Blount Wing of BBG’s Garden Center. The panels will be exhibited during BBG’s normal business hours through Saturday, November 3, 2012.
