Past ExibitionsNemunoki Children and Mariko Art Exhibition

ITOCHU AOYAMA ART SQUARE will hold its first exhibition, the Nemunoki Children and Mariko Art Exhibition, in celebration of the 45th anniversary of Nemunoki Gakuen, from Friday, October 26 to Tuesday, December 25.

Nemunoki Gakuen (located in Kakegawa-shi, Shizuoka; Mariko Miyagi, Principal) was founded in 1968 as the first school for handicapped children in Japan. The exhibition, which celebrates the 45th anniversary of Nemunoki Gakuen, will showcase the painting, yuzen-dyed fabrics and other artworks of the Nemunoki children, which have attracted a total of 5 million visitors in Japan and abroad, including Paris and New York. Mariko Miyagi, the Principal of Nemunoki Gakuen, has been credited for her dedication to child welfare and educational improvement, and has been awarded a number of prizes, including the Pestalozzi Education Reward, the Helen Keller Education Award and Special Grand Prix of the Red Cross Film Festival in Varna. In 2004, she was also recognized as an honorary citizen of Tokyo.

Nemunoki Gakuen and Chubei Itoh II

Chubei Itoh II, who established the foundations of the current general trading company, learnt of the foundation of Nemunoki Gakuen through a newspaper article. He felt the need to do something, so he visited Nemunoki Gakuen soon after it opened to make a donation. It was the first donation given to Nemunoki Gakuen. Forty-five years on, ITOCHU is continuing the spirit of Chubei Itoh II and communicating Principal Mariko Miyagi's abiding belief, that no one is incompetent, to the public through the exhibition.
