Delight and Danger: Notes from a Samurai Armor Collector (Nov. 15th Webinar)

We had a great turnout for last night’s Zoom webinar featuring samurai armor collector Gary Grose, with Cincinnati Asian Art Society President and JASGC Honorary Board Member Helen Rindsberg as host and moderator. JASGC Board Member and resident tech expert Steve Rindsberg provided behind-the-scenes PowerPoint and tech support.

Here are some participant comments:

“The Zoom program last evening was fantastic! Yuko and I both enjoyed it immensely. Yuko is an avid reader of books whose stories take place during the Warring States Era. She was in her element and glued along with me to our computer screen. Thank you for making this program possible!”
-Bob Lees, New Richmond, Ohio

“That was a very interesting and enjoyable program. Helen, Gary and Steve did a great job!”
-David W. Cook, Honorary Consul of Japan in Columbus
