AOMORI MUSEUM OF ART| 青森県立美術館

The museum is situated next to the excavation site of the Sannai-Maruyama ruins from the Jomon Period (10,000 – 300 BC). Architect Jun Aoki’s idea was to dig trenches as if they were from an excavation site. Works of domestic and international artists make up the permanent collection – among them Yoshitomo Nara, Shusaku Arakawa (spot #59) , Marc Chagall, and Paul Klee. A theater, restaurant, and shop are also part of the four-story structure.
