YONEDA KOJI

The Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum is located in the Nagasaki Seaside Park. The museum's glass walls allow brilliant sunshine to fill the interior, creating a bright, spacious atmosphere. Near the museum is the sea, connecting all things in the world. The museum's wonderful design and excellent location perfectly represent the concept of the museum. Since opening, the museum has been focusing on the concept of a "Breathing Museum" as its main theme. By sharing people's daily experiences, the museum aims to offer opportunities for human-based and friendly communication. All the museum staff members look forward to seeing you here at the museum.
Some people call the 21st century "the Century of Cultural Arts and Information" or "the Century of Culture and Economy." Culture plays an essential part in developing abilities for cities to overcome their difficulties and continue to prosper.
The museum strives to be popular enough to be casually used by almost all age groups, from children to elderly people, and seeks to present possibilities for the future.
Serving as a bridge between human beings and the arts, the museum will promote a wide range of efforts to encourage interaction among nations, regions and age groups, as well as between artists and museum visitors.
Moreover, the museum aims to shift its management emphasis from the second-generation style, which focuses on exhibitions, to the third-generation style, which emphasizes hands-on experiences.
On top of gathering information and material, the museum will actively disseminate information and provide opportunities for people to promote interactions casually in their daily lives.
The museum seeks to use the arts to establish various forms of communication and cooperation among a wide variety of organizations relevant to school education, social education and arts, and hereby to actively support community and regional revitalization efforts.
To do so, all the museum's experts will work in an excellent harmony like an orchestra, develop their teamwork and do their best to fulfill the important mission of transmission and creation of culture.
