The Ultimate TAD Children’s Museum of Art and Design, opening Saturday, May 28, and will feature works depicting children from the Takiguchi collection, prints by Keiko Minami and Masuo Ikeda, and original picture book drawings by Noriko Ueno.
In addition, a selection of works by The World of Illustrations for Children’s Books 2022 from the Miyagi Museum of Art will have three works by Ikeda Tatsuo, a close friend of Shuzo Takiguchi on display.
