Rokko Meets Art Art Walk 2022, which started with the installation of works in the heat wave, has ended, and the works are being taken down in the clear air of early winter. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who came to see us, those who showed interest in us, those who supported us, all the staff involved, and above all, all the artists who exhibited their works. This year, the 13th year of the event, there were many repeat visitors, and we were able to welcome a wide range of visitors, such as friends, family members, and solo travelers walking around Mt. Rokko. I was.
The environment surrounding art and exhibitions has also changed in the chaotic social conditions in which the corona disaster has not ended and conflicts and conflicts have not stopped. On the other hand, many excellent art festivals are held in Japan this year, and many viewers are facing the works. There are various views on the role of artists in daily life, leisure, tourism, and regional revitalization, but artists who create new values, discover hidden values, and reinterpret values. and his works are a very important infrastructure of thought for us.
While thinking about the events occurring beyond the sea and sky that can be seen from Mt. Rokko, I hope to continue working with many people on Mt. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our customers and everyone involved. Thank you very much.
