Outline

A museum with an operating concept of "warehouse" that matches the problem of vacant public buildings in depopulated areas with the problem of storage space in the art industry. It is one of the base facilities of the "Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial" held in this area. The renovated exhibition space of the old elementary school building gives visitors a sense that art can be found in everyday life.
