Beginning tomorrow (Saturday April 9th) at 11:00 am EST is Concert For Japan, a 12-hour charity concert hosted by our very own Japan Society in New York! The concert features performers such as Philip Glass, Lou Reed and Ryuichi Sakamoto. Although tickets for the gala are already sold out, the concert will be projected on screens both inside and outside the building and will stream live on UStream.

Also of note is Luminous Washi Lantern, a site-specific architectural installation by New York-based architect and RISD professor Aki Ishida. Designed in collaboration with RISD students, the project will be accompanied by an ongoing workshop to teach visitors how to fold paper pieces that will be added to the installation.
