A Conversation with Yuko Yamaguchi
Yuko Yamaguchi has been Hello Kitty’s designer since 1980 and is credited with guiding the character’s development through a wildly successful 30-year period. Yamaguchi takes her role very seriously and has been quoted as saying, “What she does, I do, and what I do, Hello Kitty does.”
This event is a rare opportunity to engage with the most influential figure in Hello Kitty’s world. Yamaguchi will sign copies of the Hello! exhibition catalog following the program. $16 members, $20 non-members.
Admission to Common Ground and Hello! Exploring the Supercute World of Hello Kitty are included.
