A close-up on hand stamp art conveying Tokyo's diversity and inclusion (August 31, 2021)
Today we would like to highlight the hand stamp art on display at TMC Yurakucho.
The Olympic and Paralympic Games are not only for sports, they are also festivals of culture. Did you know that the Tokyo Metropolitan Government is rolling out a myriad of cultural programs sharing the charms of Tokyo, a city of art and culture?
"Hand stamp art" is one such program. Hand and footprint cut-outs from children with illnesses or impairments and those of their supporters are collected to create one large piece of artwork. Replicas of pieces planned for exhibition at Tokyo 2020 Live Sites are now in the workspace at TMC Yurakucho. Use the QR Code next to the art display to learn about how the original pieces was made. The original pieces can be viewed at the Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre in Ikebukuro until September 12. Other hand stamp art pieces on display at TMC Yurakucho include a version of Hokusai's Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji and a large sunflower.
Please feel free to use the hand stamp art display areas for photography or broadcasting. Staff at TMC Yurakucho are available to assist you.
