The Peace Mural Foundation
Nearly 20 years in the making, Huong’s Peace Mural is the culmination of 30 years of searing memories that brings history to life and depicts the universal pain of war and hope for peace. In its entirety, the Peace Mural is over 800 feet in length and 8 feet tall, comprised of nearly 2000 paintings. The exhibition often includes a number of free-standing pieces from Huong’s private war/peace collection.
Wa Daiko is the name that is given to the traditional art form of taiko drumming from the country of Japan. "Wa" stands for "Japanese" and "Daiko" means "drum(s)" ; so "Wa Daiko" means "Japanese drum(s)" and it is considered as a martial art form that has started about 2600 years ago when Japan was colonized by Korea and today it is practiced and admired in many different countries from all over the world. That is what Fushu Daiko does for more than 20 years now.

Japanese Ikebana Class

What is Ikebana? Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. It is more than simply putting flowers in a container. It is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together. It is steeped in the philosophy of developing closeness with nature. Miami Chapter 131 was founded by the late Marie Summers in 1969. The members exhibit their work, demonstrate their skill and offer their love of Ikebana to the Miami area community. They have done so for more than 40 years with dedication to the motto, “Friendship through Flowers”. Asian Festival Program at the Coral Rock Auditorium presented by: I.I.
