A flower-themed exhibition was held to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Towada Art Center. “flowers” featured artworks displayed both in the museum and around the city from a total of fourteen contributing artists, including Kusama Yayoi, Takahashi Kyota, Choi Jeonghwa, and Nara Yoshitomo, all of whom have pieces in Towada Art Center’s permanent collection. Two years after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, this floral-themed art generated compassion among museum visitors and helped them summon up the courage to face ongoing issues stemming from the tragedy. “flowers” opened in late April, a time when Towada sees cherry blossoms in full bloom. The exhibition joined the hundreds of cherry trees that line Kanchogai Avenue, where Towada Art Center is located, to make art bloom across the city.
