Toyama Kenritsu Kindai Bijutsukan (Museum of Modern Art)
Toyama Kenritsu Kindai Bijutsukan is a white building with a mirrored glass exterior which stands against the backdrop of the Tate-yama mountain range. A rooftop dome is designed to bring in natural light in a way that evokes the faint gleam of snow by starlight. Works kept at the museum range from paintings, sketches, woodblock prints, sculptures and artifacts to new forms of expression including plastic arts, design work with a focus on posters and chairs, and video art. The poster collection is a unique feature of the museum. Since 1985, the World Poster Triennale Toyama international poster competition has been held here, and the winning works added to the museums collection.'
