Free! Contemporary Art Exhibit in Okayama

Free! Contemporary Art Exhibit in Okayama

This exhibit of contemporary art by young, local artists is currently being displayed at the Tenjinyama Cultural Plaza in central Okayama City, in the area known as the “Culture Zone”.

The 11 pieces in the exhibit include both two-dimensional and three-dimensional works, and were selected from 36 submissions as being superior. The works will be judged by the director of the Ohara Museum of Art and four other judges, with awards being announced in February.

If you’re looking for a quick “art fix”, I recommend stopping by the Tenjinyama Cultural Plaza! I stopped by and was happily surprised at the high quality of the pieces on display; unfortunately, photos weren’t allowed to be taken inside the gallery so if you’re an art lover, you should stop by and see the artwork for yourself.
