A few months ago, the Tin Toy Exhibition at Epcot’s Japan pavilion gallery closed after several years without much notice to make way for a new exhibition. Expected to have opened in mid-October, reported delays in having the pieces shipped to Walt Disney World from Japan kept the gallery closed until very recently.
The Bijutsu-kan gallery now hosts a touring exhibition titled Timeless Beauty: World Heritage Sites of Japan. Featuring photographs by Kazuyoshi Miyoshi, the images pay homage to places designated as World Heritage Sites, locations around the world adopted by a 1971 United Nations international treaty to identify places that ‘belong to all people’ around the globe.
A Stitch Kingdom reader has provided us with photos of the space and exhibition and we are pleased to give you this first look and hope you are able to visit the exhibition yourself the next time you visit Epcot.
As a sidebar, the Kidcot station in the Japan pavilion appears to have remained outside of the gallery.
