Ends in 22 days

*The open dates of this exhibition have been changed from May 28 (Thurs.) – June 5 (Sun.) 2020 to July 10 (Fri.) – September 4 (Fri.) 2020. Advanced reservation at the date and time appointed is required.

From the collection, around 70 masterpieces of different genres, such as Western and Japanese style painting, sculpture, and porcelain, will be exhibited in the Commemorative Special Exhibition Part 1. The theme of this show derives from a new logo, which symbolizes one of the most valuable aspects of art: opening people’s minds.

Encountering the works selected here and appreciating their pure forms and colors, or sceneries and objects represented in them, viewers are awakened to a sense of exaltation or tranquility. Although difficult to experience in busy daily life, such awakening of the senses through art is of great importance in leading to open-mindedness and thereby in fostering a meaningful life.
