Twenty Years Of Cultural Enrichment

Since its establishment in 1991, Tenri Cultural Institute has had the privilege of showcasing the works of artists and performers whose art has inspired kings and emperors and influenced popular culture.

The Arts Gallery, designed by: Marble Fairbanks Architects, is a beautiful bright space that hosts ten shows a year from contemporary artists such as Matt Mahurin to traditional master painters such as Dae Won Kim. We have also featured Japanese calligrapher Miwako Kawakami and photographer Mitch Epstein.

Performing Arts Space: Hosting over 80 performances a year in dance, theater and music. Our artistic focus: Chamber music ensembles such as Borromeo String Quartet and amateur artists such as students from NYU School of Music, Japanese traditional performers such as Ronnie Nyogetsu Seldin and Sachiyo Ito and other acoustic and vocal musicians such as the Art Mob.

Japanese School: Native speaker instructors help advanced and beginner students master the Japanese language in small, multi-media classes.
