The Towada Art Center was opened in the spring of 2008 as a central fixture of the Arts Towada Project, a city-wide initiative promoted by Towada to fill the city center with art.
The Towada Art Center’s permanent exhibition has 38 works by 33 internationally acclaimed artists from all over the world, including work by Choi Jeong Hwa, Yayoi Kusama, Ron Mueck, and Yoko Ono. Of the permanent collection, 25 works by 22 artists are located inside the museum while another 13 works are located outdoors at the adjacent Art Square.
In addition to its permanent collection space, the Towada Art Center promotes the arts in the community, offering galleries, collaborative spaces, and a shop and cafe that are open to everyone.
