New JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Art Exhibit Debuts on August 22
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official website for "Hirohiko Araki JoJo Exhibition: Ripples of Adventure," an exhibition celebrating the 30th anniversary of Hirohiko Araki's JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga, revealed a visual and the specific dates for the exhibit on Monday. The exhibition will run at The National Art Center, Tokyo from August 24 to October 1.
The exhibit will also have "Preview Days" on August 22-23.
The exhibition will be the biggest in the franchise's history. Flyers about the event that featured a handwritten message from Araki were distributed at the Jump Festa 2018 event in December. In the message, which also appears on the exhibition's official website, Araki said, "It's a real honor to have the privilege of displaying the JoJo 30th anniversary compilation in front of everyone in a very prestigious place." Araki is planning several new hand-drawn illustrations to display at the exhibition along with other images of his famous characters.
The project will mark only the second time that an individual manga creator will have an exhibition at The National Art Center, Tokyo. The late prolific manga and anime creator Osamu Tezuka had an exhibit at the museum 28 years ago.
The "Araki Hirohiko Genga-ten JoJo-ten in S-shi Moriō-chō 2017" (Hirohiko Araki Key Frame Exhibit JoJo Exhibit in Morioh, S City) art exhibit, which ran in Sendai from from August 12 to September 10, also marked the manga's 30th anniversary. The exhibit included art from all eight parts of the series.
