Local support and young artist support activities in Ueno, a city of art and culture
NOHGA HOTEL UENO TOKYO, operated by Nomura Real Estate Hotels Co., Ltd. (Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo / President: Hidetomo Aoki), embodies the hotel concept "a wonderful experience born from a deep connection with the community." As an event, we are pleased to announce that live painting by artist "Muraisaki" will be held.
Ueno has developed as a city of culture and art centered on Ueno Park from ancient times, and many cultural and art facilities such as art museums, museums, and Tokyo University of the Arts are still concentrated today. Against the background of these characteristics of the city, Noga Hotel Ueno Tokyo has been focusing on supporting art activities since its opening, and was born in 2010 by renovating the former Chiyoda Ward Training Junior High School as an "art center open to the local community". Under the curation (exhibition planning, exhibition proposal) by "3331 Arts Chiyoda", the exhibition and sale of contemporary art works by artists with various backgrounds, including those from the local Tokyo University of the Arts, will be exhibited and sold 3 to 4 times a year. It is held at the 1st floor lobby gallery at the pace of the times.
This time, we will hold the first art event at Noga Hotel Ueno Tokyo on June 25th (Saturday) with the thought of supporting the local community and supporting young artists. Live painting by artist "Muraisaki" who has made numerous exhibition presentations based in Tokyo and has been energetically expanding the range of activities such as live painting in collaboration with songs and painting on gas tanks in recent years. It will be held at the library lounge on the 2nd floor of the hotel.
