What is Design Festa Gallery?
Design Festa Gallery is situated in Harajuku, Tokyo, and is open year-round,
except on the Design Festa event weekends. Instantly recognizable, the
stunning Gallery building is in itself a work of art, thanks to the
contributions of artists to the exterior of the building since the Gallery
opened in April 1998, with the same original concept as the international
art event Design Festa. The interior features 12 exhibition spaces of
various sizes where artists can exhibit their work and network in a unique
and stimulating creative environment. Entrance to the Gallery is free.
Design Festa Gallery is for all artists from all over the world, both
professional and non-professional, to show their original works, and is the
ideal place for artists and art lovers to enjoy these unique creations!
