Chiura Obata (American, b. Japan, 1885-1975) left Japan as a teenager and settled in San Francisco. In summer 1927, he and two other artists traveled to Yosemite National Park and the Sierra Nevada, where Obata made over one hundred drawings and paintings of his adopted homeland's natural beauty. From 1928 to 1930, in Tokyo, Obata translated thirty-five of these sketches into color woodblock prints, retaining artistic control by reviewing the proofs after each successive block in the printing process. These prints capture kiin seido (living moment), the essential nature of a scene. In 1932 Obata began teaching at the University of California, Berkeley, but ten years later was interned along with thousands of other Japanese Americans. While detained, Obata taught art to more than six hundred people. He became a naturalized US citizen in 1954.

This calendar is perfect as décor in your home, kitchen, or office and easily helps to keep track of important dates, contacts, and other events at a glance. Each calendar month is easy to glance at and see what responsibilities you have coming up, so make sure you stay organized through the year! Personalization is easy with different colors for appointments and trips, add stickers or stickie notes for a quick reference, or create your own system of symbols and abbreviations.
