The LA Bloom Festival is celebrating the centennial year when cherry trees were gifted to the United States from Japan with community activities, performances and contemporary art.
The nine-day festival kicked off on April 27 in front of the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center. JACCC Artistic Director, Hirokazu and Co-Curator, Calvin Abe transformed the stretch into one of the worlds largest Zen Gardens with over 5 million pebbles. The eco-art-space resonates the theme of the whole festival: renewal and spring.
