Introduction to the Preservation Fund [Video]

We are happy to announce that we have released a short video (approx. 3 mins) which gives an overview of the Hiroshima Panels and the Maruki Gallery, as well as the Maruki Gallery’s Preservation Project.

We invite you to learn more about the Hiroshima Panels and our activities. We hope that you enjoy the images of the daily life at the Maruki Gallery!

About Preservation Fund

The Hiroshima Panels have gained historical and social importance in recent years, and are highly valued both in Japan and throughout the world. However, the paintings have been facing serious problems from damage caused by the Gallery’s dilapidated exhibition halls and archival warehouse, which lack controls for temperature and humidity, as well as protection from UV rays, insects and dust. 

On the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Gallery (2017), we launched a fundraising appeal to preserve the Hiroshima Panels in Japan. We are now calling for support from all around the world.

Your generous support and donations will help us care for and preserve the Hiroshima Panels for future generations. You can donate as an individual, or through a foundation, trust or company.
