The city of Niigata gets artistic once every three years as artists and local residents are invited for the Water and Land Niigata Art Festival.
The triennale features artworks that pay respect to the nature of Niigata. The participating artists include Chiharu Shiota and Navin Rawanchaikul, whose showpieces will be displayed in the area of Bandaijima until Oct. 8.
What's more, workshops for children as well as symposiums are slated to take place at various spots in the city. (Yuki Yamauchi)
