Artist Genichiro Inokuma (1902-1993) is known for his paintings and drawings of animals and people, depicted in bold lines and colors in a style that masterly fuses both the abstract and the figurative. The museum celebrates the life and work of this artist. Designed by Yoshio Taniguchi in conversation with Inokuma, the facade of the building features a large mural by the artist that also plays as a backdrop to the outdoor sculptures and the town square. The museum houses 20,000 pieces of work in its permanent collection and a vibrant exhibition program.
