The Towada Art Center celebrated its 10,000th visitor to AKI INOMATA: Significant Otherness on Sunday, October 27. The 10,000th visitor to the exhibition was actually a three-person family from Hirosaki City in Aomori.
To commemorate the occasion, the museum congratulated the family together with children who were dressed up in bagworm-themed costumes that they made at the ARTois workshop held earlier that day. The lucky family received an exhibition catalog as well as a pair of complimentary tickets to the Towada Art Center and a voucher for a limited-time exhibition dessert available at the Cube Café & Shop.
The family told the museum that they were surprised to see how the bagworms moved around and that they enjoyed the hermit crabs and the beaver artworks.
Thank you to everyone who has visited the Towada Art Center during AKI INOMATA: Significant Otherness, which is on display until January 13, 2020.
