ART CONTEST

THE GUEST JUROR

Mr. Hiroshi Senju, an internationally recognized artist and the president of Kyoto University of Art and Design.
 

Art” is the communication of our imagination. “Art” is also the wisdom for people to understand each other. As human being, we laugh when we are happy and cry when we are sad. But as human being, we have our own way of thinking and we have our own opinions. Please submit an artwork that expresses your impression and experience of “Japan” in our multi-cultural city, New York.” - Hiroshi Senju
