Blossoming Art: Park West Gallery, A Proud Sponsor of the Cherry Blossom Festival in DC

 In Art & Gallery News

From the warm and welcoming pastels of Peter Max’s famous Umbrella Man and Statue of Liberty paintings to the wonderful woman in Itzchak Tarkay’s vibrantly painted figurative artworks, Park West is no stranger to bold, evocative, and memorable color palettes. This color and creativity is on display during our online auctions, on cruise ships around the world, and in our galleries in Hawaii, Las Vegas, and New York City, but nowhere in America is color more celebrated and visited en masse than in Washington DC during the National Cherry Blossom Festival every year.

For well over one hundred years, Americans have been treated to a photographic sea of pink around the legendary Tidal Basin in our nation’s capital as hundreds of cherry blossom trees bloom bright pink and are reflected in the water. That’s right, what began as a generous gift from Japan to the USA in 1912, has bloomed into a mesmerizing month-long celebration of peace, harmony, beauty, and all things pink!

Park West is proud to sponsor a series of exciting events at this year’s National Cherry Blossom Festival, including the glamorous Opening Ceremony at the Warner Theatre, a thrilling Sakura Live video projection by the award-winning Robin Bell and other acclaimed artists including the National Cherry Blossom Festival’s official artist Nicholas Shi, and an ongoing immersive art exhibition called Color Me Pink.

Color Me Pink is an enchanting art exhibit currently on show at the Japan Information & Culture Center (JICC) located at 1150 18th Street NW, Suite 100 in Washington, DC through April 19, 2024. Not only can visitors walk among the pink trees around the tidal basin, but they can experience original artworks that were inspired by and created to pay homage to that initial gift from Japan over a century ago inside the JICC.

Make a plan to visit Washington DC in April during this year’s National Cherry Blossom Festival to experience the beauty of the blossoms outside and the beauty of the art showcased and sponsored by Park West at the Japan Information & Culture Center.
