Welcome to the Minneapolis/St Paul Chapter of Ikebana International!
We are pleased to share our love of Ikebana and the Japanese arts and culture. We regularly exhibit Ikebana arrangements in the Twin Cities and hold chapter meetings, exhibits, and programs year round.
Our group is a local chapter of Ikebana International. Ikebana International is a worldwide organization headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. Many cities across the globe have local chapters which are organized under the Tokyo Ikebana international umbrella. Members receive a beautifully illustrated magazine published and sent from Japan three times a year.
Our Chapter was established in 1969, making 2019 our 50th anniversary. We have about fifty members and are a friendly, creative group.
Two major public events our members participate in are the Art in Bloom celebration at the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Spring) the Ikebana Mum Show held at Como Park Conservatory (Autumn).
Guests and potential new members are welcome to contact us regarding attending our events.
Please browse through our website for images of some of our creations over the years. (We re-designed the site in 2020 to show off our photos to better effect. While we decided to limit the new site to the more recent years of our 50-year history, there are still quite a few images for visitors to enjoy.)
