Outline of the event
Hiratsuka Museum of Art
Hiratsuka is located in the center of the coast of Sagami Bay facing the Pacific Ocean, 50km southwest of the capital Tokyo, and was reborn as one of the post towns on the Tokaido during the Edo period. Today, the city has a total area of 67.88 square kilometers, a population of about 260,000, and is blessed with a warm climate and abundant nature.
Many artists have lived in the area called "Shonan" including Hiratsuka since the Meiji era (end of the 19th century) and have been developing an art movement. For example, the magazine "Shirakaba", which had a great influence on modern Japanese art and literature, was developed in Kamakura, and Ryusei Kishida's Kugenuma, which pursued a new style of oil painting, was developed in Kugenuma. Since then, many writers have been active until now.
It was not long after the war that the construction of an art museum was started in Hiratsuka. At the center were the artists in the area who voluntarily held the exhibition during the recovery from the air raid. In the early 1960s, the movement to donate works by each artist to the city began, and following the construction of schools, public halls and libraries, the Hiratsuka City Museum opened in 1976, and the art department was established there. .. After that, as with the national movement for lifelong learning and museum construction, the Museum Construction Research Committee was established in 1984 in Hiratsuka, and concrete movements toward opening began, and in 1986 the Hiratsuka Museum of Art basic concept In 1986, the Hiratsuka Museum of Art Construction Basic Plan was formulated, and then construction work and business preparations began, and the museum opened in March 1991.
Since its opening, the museum is located in the center of the Shonan area, and the main theme is <Shonan Art / Light>. We have implemented various projects with the major purpose of stimulating the motivation for creativity and learning.
We will continue to play a part in the maturation of the culture of the Shonan area and strive to enhance the museum activities so that many people will be familiar with it.About the facility Access
