Hiromi Takizawa will give a lecture about her work on Wednesday, September 24 in the Art and Journalism Building, AJ 225, beginning at 5:00 p.m. 

Hiromi Takizawa was born and raised in Nagano, Japan but now lives in southern California. Her current work investigates themes of distance, time, space and longing through an exploration of her relationship to the Pacific Ocean and her Japanese heritage. She attended California State University, Fullerton, where she earned her BA and MA. Takizawa also attended Santa Ana College, California State University in San Bernardino, Pilchuck Glass School, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally including solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, at Heller Gallery, New York and group exhibitions in Ohio, Michigan, New York, and Bergen, Norway. She was recently the youngest artist included in Urban Art Glass Quarterly’s “50 at 50,” a list of the top fifty artists using glass that will dominate the field in the next half century.   
Takizawa's visit coincides with an exhibition of her work, Negotiating Distance: A Neon Invitational, in the School of Art's Atrium Gallery.
