Japan Opens the National Art Center!

Japan's newest museum, opened on Jan 21st, will be its largest art museum.
The National Art Center will also be the largest museum in the world with no permanent collection.

The museum will only hold temporary exhibits ranging from beautiful foreign collections to the newest artists on the cutting edge.
So far the novel idea is working- the walls are booked for years to come with various exhibits.

The museum itself is a work of art, designed by Kisho Kurokawa - winning the 2006 Chicago Athenaeum International Architecture Award.
