Details

To commemorate the fifth anniversary of the Towada Art Center, we are proud to present flowers. Flowers have always captured people’s hearts with their beauty, and have served as the subject of art throughout the world. In Japan, it was long thought that the lives of people and flowers were intrinsically linked, as written in Kadensho, The Book of Flowers.

We have commissioned new artists, along with those who have permanent exhibits at Towada Art Center, to create flower-related pieces. The new artworks will be presented both in the museum and throughout the city of Towada. This will encourage visitors to explore the city in search of art.

The diverse range of flower-related pieces created by artists from around the world will transcend ethnicity, religion and any conflict between countries. We hope that the art will generate compassion among people and help us summon the courage to face the ongoing issues that stem from the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.
