The main building of this contemporary art museum, notable for its mural of hope, opened in November 2011.

This museum carries out many exhibitions and events, which primarily focus on contemporary art from the latter half of the twentieth century. It holds opening parties for exhibitions in its courtyard.

At times, the building’s white walls are used projection mapping. The exterior wall facing the street features a colorful mural by the French abstract painter Guillaume Bottazzi. Bottazzi, who was shocked by the news of the March 11, 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, titled his exhibition and the mural, which he completed in two months, “Hope.” As the title suggests, the mural lifts up museum visitors.
