Over the course of his life, Taro Okamoto donated as much as 2000 major works to Kawasaki City. In October 1999,  Taro Okamoto Museum of Art,Kawasaki officially opened, and this year marks its 20th anniversary.

Taro Okamoto Museum of Art,Kawasaki has held exhibitions with themes such as “Honoring Taro Okamoto through Appreciation for his Art”, “Taro Okamoto’s Exchanges with Fellow Artists and His Era”, and “The Relationship between Art and Society” in addition to stored art exhibitions in the permanent exhibition room, as a special exhibition. In total, this has amounted to over 60 exhibitions over a 20-year period.

In honor of the 20th anniversary of the museum, this exhibition will showcase sample displays of works and documents that symbolize/represent Taro Okamoto’s art from past displays allowing us to look back on the museum’s history.

The exhibition will, furthermore, be held at two separate time periods – the first exhibition and the second exhibition.

For the first exhibition period, we will feature displays with the following themes: the footsteps of Okamoto’s multifaceted endeavors, his fieldwork on identifying sources of Japanese culture from Jomon Era earthenware, and his deep relationships with fellow artists from the same era.

We believe that this exhibition will allow us to look back on 20 years of the museums various projects while serving as an opportunity to share the museum’s history with many people and expanding public awareness of the museums role.
