Even without admission, you can enjoy the world of art so far!
The Yokohama Museum of Art was opened in 1989 as a pavilion for the Yokohama Expo, and officially opened after the expo ended. As a museum suitable for the port town of Yokohama, it holds a wide range of modern and contemporary art since the opening of the port, and holds special exhibitions from its own perspective. The building, designed by the late Kenzo Tange, is novel and beautiful even after the quarter century has passed.
This time, we were invited to give lectures on how to use the facilities behind the scenes, where you can easily enjoy such an academic world.
A 20-meter-high spacious colonnade, and a staircase-like exhibition space and grand gallery extending about 100 meters to the left and right. Anyone can enter the entrance for free, so it's convenient for a meeting. The space filled with academic air is something extraordinary and exciting.
The "Café Kokurayama" facing the open space in front of the museum can also be accessed directly from the open space. A preview movie of the special exhibition is playing, and some of the art works being held in the gallery are on display.
It's a little-known little-known thing, so you can spend a lot of time on weekends. With a wide range of menus from drinks to light meals, it is secretly popular as a lunch spot.
Bright counter seats facing large windows overlooking the square. Conscientious prices such as "Yuzu soda" for 432 yen are also nice.
Limited edition menus for the exhibition are also available. The photo is 756 yen for "Milky Parfait" named after the "Mary Cassat Exhibition" being held. It is an image of Kasat, which was popular as a painter of a mother and child in a light color using condensed milk.
At the museum shop, you can purchase original goods designed for the museum collection as well as exhibition-related goods. The original round palletized sticky note (350 yen) designed with a paint palette is ideal as a souvenir.
Anyone can use the art information center in the back left of the museum free of charge. It collects, organizes, and stores books and videos related to art, and has about 110,000 books. You can also read expensive large art books and overseas art magazines that are difficult for individuals to obtain. With a spacious desk, you'll forget about your time exploring the art in a sophisticated, calm space.
Materials related to the exhibition being held will also be on display, so be sure to stop by before visiting the museum or after viewing.
Yokohama Museum of Art opened to the public on November 3, 1989. It is one of the largest art institutions in Japan. With its iconic architecture, featuring the expansive space of the Grand Gallery, the museum is made up of a total of seven gallery spaces, as well as an Art Information and Media Center that holds over 110,000 art-related books, ateliers hosting a wide range of workshops for children and adults, and many other facilities.
Located in the international seaport city of Yokohama, the museum focuses on collecting and showing modern and contemporary art created since the late 19th century, when the port of Yokohama opened, alongside many special exhibitions.
