Kyoto Art Center| 京都芸術センター

In 2000, Kyoto Art Center opened as a means to bring artists of all genres, from traditional to contemporary, to work under the same roof. Established in a former elementary school, today the classrooms function as art studios, galleries, and workshop rooms. There are exhibitions and performances that are open to the public, as well as a library and a café. The wooden hallways of this Showa Era building make it a great place to wander.
