History and Outline

The Selene Museum of Art opened on August 1, 1993, at Unazuki Onsen (hot spring) at the entrance to the Kurobe Gorge under the fundamental principle of passing on the nature of Kurobe into the future through picture art. It commissions seven sympathizers and artists of contemporary Japanese-style painting— Hirayama Ikuo, Shiode Hideo, Fukui Sawato, Tabuchi Toshio, Takeuchi Koichi, Tezuka Yuji, and Miyasako Masaaki—to produce new works around the theme of Kurobe for display in a permanent exhibition.
