About Garden in the Galleries: The Tucson Museum of Art is pleased to announce a two-day special exhibition, Garden in the Galleries, presenting ikebana flower arrangements located throughout the museum’s art galleries. Ikebana, or “living flowers,” is a Japanese ancient art dating back to the 7th century when offerings of flowers were made at altars. By the 16th century, this art form became integrated into Buddhist and Shinto religions.
