Art Setouchi – August 2011

If you don’t mind the heat that will most likely be present, August is the perfect month to visit Art Setouchi, as many of the artworks are open longer than usual because of Obon, and many events and activities will be held.

I won’t be able to list them all (mostly because I don’t know all of them) but know that between August 12th and August 16th:

  • Shima Kitchen will host daily workshops and live music performances.
  • Megi House will host exhibits and events organized by the Aichi Prefectural University of the Arts.
