Construction Begins on the New Bridgestone Museum of Art


To be located inside the Nagasaka Sangyo Kyobashi Building (tentatively named) 2016.06.17
Since May of last year, the Ishibashi Foundation Bridgestone Museum of Art (Tokyo, Director Hiroshi Ishibashi) has been closed during preparations for its reconstruction. Construction of the new Nagasaka Sangyo Kyobashi Building (tentative name), where the new Bridgestone Museum of Art will be located, will begin with a groundbreaking ceremony on June 17, 2016.

The new Bridgestone Museum of Art will have nearly twice the floor space of its predecessor.
There, specially tailored exhibitions will display Impressionist, Abstract, Modern Japanese Western-style, and Traditional Japanese art from the Ishibashi Foundation’s collection of more than 2,500 works. While the museum will stand on the same site, its entrance will be shifted from its previous location on Yaesu Avenue to Chuo Avenue, the street that connects the Ginza and Nihonbashi. After reopening, the museum will become a center for art and culture, contributing to the redevelopment of the Kyobashi 1-chome area.
