Two weeks full of art
The New Ikebukuro Montparnasse West side Art Festival, organized by the Kaiyu Art Museum

Each spot in the area is transformed into a gallery! Pieces by unique artists appear throughout the streets of Ikebukuro under the concept of every spot in the area being an art museum.

2017, which marks the 12th anniversary of the event, will see the first collaboration with the classic sci-fi cartoon Astro Boy, which was created by the renown cartoonist Osamu Tezuka!

C-DEPOT, which is a group of artists involved in many genres, will join hands with Astro Boy to present ”Our Special Astro Boy Exhibition, Astro Boy x C-DEPOT”. It will be an event where you can enjoy “an Artful Astro Boy” that you have never seen before.

There will also be plenty of other attractions including exhibitions by young artists who have been invited to participate, exhibitions of children’s artwork, and workshops. Come to Ikebukuro – the town of art, in May, when the new foliage is beautiful.

Schedule: May 18 (Thu.) to 31 (Wed.), 2017
Venue: Various spots around Ikebukuro. See the link below for details
