Yuko Takesako (Vice Director, Chihiro Art Museum Azumino)

The Chihiro Art Museum, home to a collection of 26500 original art works by 203 artists from 33 countries, believes that the picture book is “the first art and literature the child contacts” and “a cultural heritage which can be enjoyed from a zero-year old baby to someone over one hundred years old”. In this presentation Yuko Takesako will introduce the 37-year history and the full scope of activities of the Chihiro Art Museum and how picture book museums benefit picture book artists.
