When the museum is expanded, it is also funded again.

An interview of Mr. and Mrs. Okubo who contributed for founding the Museum of Higashi-Hiroshima. Although the couple is not an artist, a curator, or a collector, they have put much effort in supporting local art. The work documents the interview of Mrs. Okubo and stories of Mr. Okubo by those who knew him. By doing so, the work seeks to capture value of art, which might not be seen by so-called professionals in the art world.
