Outreach ProgramThe Hiroshima MOCA Collection at Various Venues B. Okawa Museum of Art (Gunma Prefecture)

This year, the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, we consider the power of painting by looking back at the work of artists who lived through the war in a two-part exhibition. The first part consists of approximately 50 works by the Hiroshima-born painter Ai-Mitsu (1907-1946) as well as pieces by other artists of the era. The second part examines an exhibition of The Hiroshima Panels, a collaborative work made by Maruki Iri (1901-1995) and his wife Toshi (1912-2000), which was held in 1952 at the Morimasa Department Store in Kiryu, Gunma Prefecture.
