Greeting from HAJAS president:


Heart of America Japan-America Society Members –

Our HAJAS summer activities and events are ready to begin in full force. At the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art on Sunday, July 7, at 2:00 pm, Dr. Maribeth Graybill, curator of Asian Art at the Portland Art Museum in Oregon, will discuss art from one of the West’s finest collections of Japanese paintings and calligraphy at the Portland Art Museum. Our Society received a special arts grant through the Richard J. Wood Art Curator Series for this presentation. The event is free. Please don’t miss it!

Watch our website for information on events that will be held during the Kurashiki Friendship Delegation visit.  They will be in Kansas City from Wednesday, July 24, until Thursday, August 8.  Watch for information on the Homestay Family Exchange Dinner and the Farewell Dinner at our home on Wednesday, August 7. Society members are encouraged to attend these two events to meet and interact with our student guests. A small fee will be charged to attend.
