The former junior high school in Momoshima was closed down in 1999. In 2010, Yukinori Yanagi, an artist, began to renovate this abandoned school building with collaborators to transform it into a vibrant art center. Two years later, in November 2012, ART BASE MOMOSHIMA opened to public and since then it has attracted many visitors from the region and beyond . In addition to the display of works that change regularly, ART BASE MOMOSHIMA presents a special exhibition every fall. (ART BASE MOMOSHIMA)続きを読む アートベース百島 ART BASE MOMOSHIMA
