Tanabata
July 1–8, 2014, all day
Tanabata traces its origins to a legend about lovers that are allowed to meet just once a year—on the seventh day of the seventh month. In Japan, children and adults write wishes on strips of colored paper known as tanzaku, and hang them on bamboo branches. Mirroring that tradition, visitors can write their own wishes and place them on the Tanabata bamboo in the museum lobby.
