The Setouchi International Art Festival 2010 has ended. Or has it?

Ok, I was planning on doing this little by little as my posts devoted to specific art sites from the festival are coming soon (I have already started on my French blog if you can read the language), but reading Cathy Hirano’s blog this morning, I realized that we’re almost in December and maybe I should hurry up a bit, so why not just devote an entire entry to the thing.

What am I talking about?

I’m talking about that despite the fact that the Setouchi International Art Festival has ended, some of the works of art that were part of it are still around and can still be viewed, some permanently, some until the end of the year, some until the end of march (maybe longer, but there’s no word about it yet).

If you can read Japanese, it will be faster for you to just go to the pages of the different schedules here and there, for the rest of us, fear not, I’m writing this entry especially for you, those of you that have the opportunity to go to the area and who don’t know Japanese.

I break down the different artworks and art sites island by island, and I’m keeping their festival number although I’m not sure they’re still used on site.

Note that most of the artworks that remain open during this period and that are indoors will be closed around New Year’s. Also, there’s no word out about after March.

I hope this helps. Of course, things may change along the way, I’ll try to edit this post accordingly if I (or you) notice any change. If some schedule is released for after March, I guess I’ll write another entry.
