Something for everyone — that seems to be the motto for the new Towada Art Center in Aomori Prefecture. With cash in hand and a desire to see their town turn around, Towada has banked on art as a way to bring back vitality to an area that has lacked it of late.

The TAC is amazingly forward looking for a prefectural museum, and open-ended. With an art collection selected by international professionals and city representatives, it is: a contemporary museum with permanent installations; a center for cultural events for Towada residents; a tourist attraction to compete with the surrounding natural beauty; and a place to feature the pride of Towada, its Imperial horses.
