In the final DBG Bonfils Stanton lecture of the season, Dr. Diana Lee will present the concepts behind Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging. The ancient art form focuses on the rhythm and innate order of nature through the application of linear design — lines representing Heaven, Mankind, and Earth. Lee will create four different arrangements, each depicting one of the four seasons in the Rocky Mountain West, and will also discuss the materials used in Ikebana and where to obtain them locally..

Lee was born in Shanghai, raised in Hong Kong and educated in the United States. She is an engineer and professor and has spent the past five decades studying and teaching the art of Ikebana.

Slow Food Denver will host a tasting of local foods prepared by Chef Carrie Balkcom before the lecture.
