Art Tower Mito, a multi-art complex designed by Arata Isozaki consisting of a theatre, a concert hall, and a contemporary art museum, was opened in 1990 as a means of revitalizing the area. Each of the three major facilities has an active programming to promote its respective field. The museum is widely known for its exhibitions with subject matter unconventional to the white cube environment, such as graffiti/street art, fashion, and young up-and-coming artists from Asia.
