Appreciation, representation, learning and communication are the four" "fundamental themes" "of the Matsumoto City Art Museum (Matsumoto-shi Bijutsu-kan), which features works by the city's most famous daughter, Yayoi Kusama, as well as other local artists.
Kusama was born in 1929 and is internationally known for her signature Pop Art works. The collection of the artist's works includes various paintings and sculptures created in her typically lively and colorful style. Outside the main entrance of the building you can also admire a large tulip sculpture of her, which was unveiled when the museum was founded in 2002.
The works of other artists are shown in a separate section of the museum, which rotate throughout the year. The museum also houses a shop that sells various souvenirs and art-related goods.
