Guests will also be among the first to view a new exhibition by artist James Carl, featuring works Carl has created using a remarkably elaborate and mathematical process of weaving lengths of venetian blinds. Guests will explore the grounds to see newly fabricated 26-foot steel sculpture, Dina Wind: Harp of David #1, as well as indoor and outdoor works by stone sculptor Masayuki Koorida.
