Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum
Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum aspires to be a “doorway to art.” The Museum, in its new incarnation, aspires to be a “doorway to art,” open to all people for compelling art experiences—a place where children can visit, budding artists can debut their works, and people with disabilities can come to enjoy art without hesitation.
The Museum will strive to build an “art community as a place for creativity and coaction,” where people can encounter new values, re-examine themselves, and deepen their bonds with the world. It will seek to be a place where people engage in art as “nourishment for living.” The Museum will strive to become “a haven for enrichment of the heart.”
The Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum is an art museum in Tokyo, Japan. The museum is located in Minato ward, just east of Meguro Station. The Art Deco building, completed in 1933, has interiors designed by Henri Rapin and features decorative glass work by René Lalique.
