The Sakura City Museum of Art is located in the center of Sakura, which flourished in the Edo period as a castle town of the 110,000-goku Horita clan, which encouraged the arts and culture, and is surrounded by many historical sites including the samurai residences and the former Sakura Juntendo. The museum was built in consideration of the preservation and utilization of the former Kawasaki Bank Sakura Branch (Chiba Prefecture-designated Tangible Cultural Property) built in the Taisho era (1912-1926), and opened in November 1994 with the aim of creating a facility that is familiar to citizens so that they can have a better understanding and familiarity with art and culture.
The museum collects works by artists associated with Sakura and Boso, and holds exhibitions to introduce these works and, by extension, Japanese modern art. The museum also holds exhibitions on various aspects of art, such as contemporary art, prints, and summer vacation programs for children, and offers them to a wide range of audiences.
The exhibition room on the third floor is used as a place for citizens to present their works, to stimulate creative activities, and to appreciate the works of familiar people, which we believe will lead to the spread of art. The hall is also available for rent to the public and the local community for a wide range of purposes.
