April 2014 Spotlight: Performing Arts Center at Dominican University + Kuniko Yamamoto

Performing Arts Center in River Forest, IL presented Kuniko Yamamoto in January 2014. This Arts Midwest Touring Fund—supported engagement featured a public performance and origami & story telling workshops for youth and seniors. The Performing Arts Center at Dominican University acts as space for creative spirits to come together just west of Chicago’s Loop. Part of the mission of Dominican University and thus of the Performing Arts Center is to “participate in the creation of a more just and humane world.” The Performing Arts Center believes bridges of understanding between cultures are key to that mission; an effective tool in building those bridges is art. The Performing Arts Center brings in artists from both local and international landscapes to provide meaningful, artistic experiences to the campus and surrounding neighborhood community.
