Yasue Sakaoka at UD
By Jud Yalkut
Yasue Sakaoka is a Japanese artist resident in Columbus who has received the 2007 Ohio Heritage Fellowship for Material Culture and most recently the 2010 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Award. Her pioneering work on the fabrication of giant Origami paper sculpture has enriched the crossover of cultures with installations in such venues as the I.M. Pei building across from Dayton’s Courthouse Square. Sakaoka will present a new piece from Feb. 8 through March 11 at the University of Dayton’s ArtStreet Studio D, located at the intersection of Lawnview Avenue and Kiefaber Street on the UD campus. A reception and artist’s talk will be from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 8, followed by a workshop at ArtStreet Studio E from 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 9.
