Unique cardboard art exhibition to open

Date Posted: 2012-07-27

Hard to believe, an exhibition about insects, dinosaurs, slides, trains and more, all created from cardboard.

It’s real though, and the Cardboard Art Exhibition opens Saturday at the Urasoe Shopping Center for a one-month run. Cardboard, normally viewed only as something for transporting items or goods, or for packing, is much more to Goichirou Okamura, who also has the title ‘King of Cardboard’.

Okamura has been creating cardboard works for kids, and plans to let kids play with his works at the Urasoe Shopping Center through August. His “Slide of Pirates”, “Train”, “Seesaw” and “Rocking Horse” are all large enough to ride, while his insects are larger than humans. The Cardboard Art Exhibition runs daily 10:30 a.m. ~ 6 p.m. daily, with last entry to the exhibition at 5:20 p.m.

Entry is ¥300 for an advance ticket for all visitors on weekdays, or ¥400 at the door to the exhibition on the Urasoe Shopping Center third floor. The weekend entry price is ¥500. Parking space is limited, and the shopping center encourages use of public transportation.
