Fujimura writes in Refractions: a journey of art, faith and culture:

Nihonga (Japanese-style painting) master Matazo Kayama passed away in April of 2004.  When I heard the news, I began a painting called Splendor, which was exhibited in his memory that fall in TriBeCa, New York City...Professor Kayama selected me to be the first artist outside of their traditional curriculum in the prestigious post-MFA program, an extension of lineage that has been in existence since fourteenth-century Japan (I came in as an "outsider," an American with a Japanese National Scholarship.)"
