Summer blossoms at the Shang
(The Philippine Star) - March 8, 2014 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines -This March, premier lifestyle hub Shangri-La Plaza offers mall guests a new and refreshing art-in-nature experience featuring the styles and techniques of Ikebana, also known as the Japanese art of flower arrangement, at the mall’s East Atrium.

From March 8 to 9, the Ikebana International Manila Chapter holds the 47th edition of its annual Ikebana exhibit, featuring unique works created by its award-winning members, with live flower arrangement demonstrations on March 8 and March 9 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on both days. 

With over 500 years of history, Ikenobo is considered Ikebana’s oldest school of technique in Japan. Presented by the Ikenobo Ikebana Society of Manila, this year’s exhibit is “Bangon Pilipinas,” a homage to the Filipino spirit in the face of adversity during the onset of typhoon Haiyan.

This exhibit, which runs from March 12 to 16, aims to promote the different styles of Ikenobo, and its versatility in expressing the artist’s feeling.

Contrary to traditional Ikebana exhibitions that last for only about three days, Bangon Pilipinas will have an extended run of five days to further convey and emphasize the Filipino’s strong and unrelenting spirit.

Live demonstrations will be held at the East Atrium from March 12 to 15 at 4p.m. daily.

For information, call 370-2500 loc. 597 or visit www.facebook.com/shangrilaplazaofficialfanpage. Follow Shang on Instagram: @shangrilaplazaoffical.
