The 19th Kanagawa Biennial World Children's Art Exhibition

About Exhibition

We received 24,572 entries (389 from around the world / 130 from Kanagawa Prefecture) for the 19th Kanagawa Biennale International Children's Exhibition. The works by children (four to fifteen) were sent to us overcoming the language and cultural barriers. The number of the participant countries is eighty-eight including one region. Selected 519 works are displayed during the period (7 July to 20 Aug.). Children and students represent what they see, ongoing issues, imagination on the drawing papers. You will be able to feel their desire conveyed from the pictures that are sent abroad across borders. If you have one pencil and one paper, you can represent all. Please try to feel one world through art.
