Hearts Towada Exhibition

Exhibition Planning, Curation & Coordination

The “Hearts Towada Exhibition” showcased artists from around the world who had created artworks for the permanent collection at Towada Art Center. The exhibition aimed to provide assistance for areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake and to deepen the connection between the museum and the community. Towada Art Center had opened three years prior with the goal of integrating art and community development. Looking back on what it had accomplished in that time, the museum asked what it could now do in response to the earthquake, and decided to do whatever it could, in its role as an institution that embodies creativity to encourage and enrich people’s lives. All proceeds from the exhibition, including the sale of selected artworks, were donated to affected areas to support relief efforts across Japan.
