I've had the honor of performing at Yohei Taneda-san's "思い出のマーニー" ["When Marnie Was There"] Exhibition tonight, alongside Takatsugu Muramatsu-san, accompanying on piano! I look up to these 2 people very much. They are both one-of-a-kind, incredible talents!
If you've seen the movie already -- or even if you haven't -- you should really see this exhibition while you still can!! The intricate detail and thought that Taneda-san and his team put into this exhibition is so captivating from start to finish. Photography is not allowed inside, but I was given very special permission to post photos from the inside to share with all of you!!! These photos only show a few of the highlights to see when you go in person, and of course it doesn't quite capture all the detail and the actual 'feeling' of being there. There really is a feeling there... the smell of the wood, the wind in the silo! Please check this exhibition out in person while you still can!
SPOILER ALERT!!! If you are planning on visiting the museum... maybe don't look at these photos! Because it really was so eye-opening to be surprised by every new room, you may want to wait to see it in person first!
July 27 - September 15
Original drawings on display by Taneda-san as well as the Director, Hiromasa Yonebayashi-san.
It really feels like you're there in the Marsh House.
Beautiful hand-drawn wallpaper design
Amazing 3-D replicas of scenes with holograms and day to night changes!
