Kudou Shizuka Exhibit

The Shimodate Museum of Art is currently holding an exhibit of the work of Kudou Shizuka, celebrating her 25th year as a singer this year. Ms. Kudou made her solo debut in the late 80s and has many hit songs under her belt. In order to commemorate this memorable year and to express her deep sentiments towards music she has been devoting herself to her performances.

At the same time, she began oil-painting in 1988 and won the newcomer’s award at the 75th Annual Nika Exhibit two years later. Her feminine style displays quite a different side from her powerful stage presence but still evokes a strong sense of identity, and she has placed many times in the Nika Exhibit over the years. In particular, in last year’s 95th Annual Nika Exhibit her ‘Depths of the Eyes’ won the special selection prize, and her further artistic activities are quite highly anticipated.

This exhibit will display 56 pieces, including the highly acclaimed ‘Depths of the Eyes’.

Period: June 2nd to July 29th

Hours: 10am to 6pm (last entry 5:30, closed on Mondays)

Admission: Adults 500yen, High school and under free.
