Calligraphy students of Shozo Sato currently have an exhibit up at Krannert Art Museum. Kanji calligraphy “is a Japanese art form that uses Han letterforms from Chinese script to create works that evoke harmony and wisdom…The writing of Kanji is said to communicate one’s inner thoughts, personality, and state of being at the time the piece is executed.”

The exhibit is located on the lower level of KAM, and is a companion exhibit to The Ink Wash Paintings of Shozo Sato, which is on display through December 16th. If you are in the museum, it is worth venturing down to see the large-scale pieces.
