Tokyo’s Sunset-to-Sunrise Festival of Art

Notification of Cancellation of Roppongi Art Night 2011 on March
We would like to express our thoughts and condolences to those adversely affected by the Tohoku and Pacific Ocean Earthquake.

In light of the damage from the recent earthquake, the issues with electricity, the continuing aftershocks, and other associated issues, the event "Roppongi Art Night 2011" advertised on many medias has been cancelled.

The date to hold next Roppongi Art Night is being considered and discussed by the Roppongi Art Night Committee together with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the Tokyo Metropolitan Foundation for History and Culture. As soon as further information is available we will make it available to you. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Roppongi Art Night 2011 is so much more than a rare chance to enjoy extended late night viewing hours at leading art museums. For one night only, the entire town of Roppongi becomes a giant gallery of art. Even local restaurants and cafes join the celebrations and stay open late into the night for festival visitors. Make plans to show up during “Core Time” from sunset (17:57) on March 26 until sunrise (5:36) to see the highlight art programs and events planned for this year.

This year’s Roppongi Art Night features new works by the celebrated Japanese artist KUSAMA Yayoi and a festive parade of art mikoshi (portable shrines) created by artists at the cutting edge. Fusing the traditional Japanese matsuri spirit with the originality of talented artists, the art mikoshi will electrify the night!
