In Collection Gallery 2, we would like to introduce the paintings of KAWAHIRA Keizo, a local artist who paints on the theme of Okinawa.

■Collection Gallery 3   The History of Okinawa's Fine Arts 

Okinawa has a distinct culture born from its unique cultural climate and past; its art has also been greatly influenced by its position and role at various times in its tumultuous history. 
This exhibition provides an overview of the history of modern and contemporary Okinawan art from pre-war to the present.
Works collected in the previous year will also be shown for the first time, and the influence on Okinawan art by artists who came from outside the prefecture and were involved in art education will also be examined.
