Tsutakawa Memorial Gates: Public Celebration

3:30 to 6:00 p.m., September 14, 2022
Graham Visitors Center

Please join us to celebrate the return of the Tsutakawa Memorial Gates to the Arboretum. The original gates—created in 1976 by renowned Northwest artist George Tsutakawa to memorialize all those who love and support the Arboretum—were stolen and destroyed at the start of the pandemic in 2020. Thanks to support from private donors and local government organizations, the gates have been lovingly recreated by George’s son, sculptor Gerard Tsutakawa, who fabricated the original gates for his father. Enjoy live music, taiko drumming, food trucks, and more.
