Setouchi Triennale draws throngs of visitors to Seto Inland Sea
Art works adorning 10 islands in the Seto Inland Sea are drawing a host of tourists there, as the Setouchi Triennale 2013 continues in Okayama and Kagawa prefectures to celebrate contemporary art from the world over.
In a pastoral area on Shodo Island in Kagawa Prefecture, gigantic works of art made from rice straw -- in the shapes of a 4-meter-tall gorilla and a 3.4-meter-tall triceratops -- appeared in the Tonoshocho Hitoyama district. The works were produced by a total of some 220 people, including professors and students from Musashino Art University in the Tokyo city of Kodaira, as well as local residents.
The festival will run through Nov. 4. For more information, call the general information center at: 087-813-2244.
