Driving regional vitality through the power of art! Yamanashi Prefectural Museum of Art begins new value creation
Yamanashi Prefecture exhibits NFT art as a hometown tax return gift for the first time!
The first item is NFT art by Kazuki Takakura, a contemporary artist from the prefecture. A workshop on the latest VR technology will also be held. Please pay attention to the new value creation at the Yamanashi Prefectural Museum of Art.
Yamanashi Prefecture (Governor: Kotaro Nagasaki) formulated a vision in June of this year with the aim of making the Yamanashi Prefectural Museum of Art a hub for creating new value*.
*New value: “social and economic richness” in addition to the cultural richness that the prefectural museum of art has traditionally had.
As part of this new value creation, the prefecture will use content created by contemporary artists who have been involved in prefectural projects as return gifts for hometown tax payments, and will use these donations to promote culture and the arts, including museum
activities, and to artists in a wide range of fields. The funds will be used for support and development.
The first return gift is a set of NFT art and a painting by Kazuki Takakura, a contemporary artist from this prefecture who participated in the exhibition project “LABONCHI *vol.1″ held at the Prefectural Museum of Art. We will be exhibiting.
This return gift was created based on the content of Mr. Takakura’s work exhibition “Mecharial Exhibition”, with the motif of Dosojin, who is connected to Yamanashi Prefecture.
*”LABONCHI”…A project series that explores the possibilities of the Prefectural Museum of Art.
The distribution of this return gift will be carried out by Yumemi Co., Ltd. (Representative Director: Toshiyuki Kataoka), a digital services business development support and consulting company, and information on handling hometown tax payments will be accepted on the Satofuru website.
