The Center for Contemporary Graphic Art (CCGA) is an art museum that opened in Sukagawa, Fukushima, in April 1995 in a lush setting at the foot of Mt. Uzumine. It was established by Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd. as the company's contribution to the promotion of graphic art, following the previous openings of ginza graphic gallery and Kyoto ddd gallery. Since July 2008, CCGA has been operated by DNP Foundation for Cultural Promotion.
The role of CCGA is to serve as an archive center to pass on to future generations outstanding works and materials in graphic design and graphic arts as a valuable cultural heritage in a land blessed with beautiful natural surroundings and ideal for the preservation of art. The two main collections are the Tyler Graphics Archive Collection, a collection of prints created by Tyler Graphics in collaboration with the artists throughout the history of contemporary American art, and DNP Archives of Graphic Design, a collection of internationally acclaimed masterpieces of contemporary Japanese graphic design.
CCGA contributes to the spread and development of our country's graphic arts culture by making these collections widely available to the public through exhibitions and events, as well as responding to various inquiries and requests from educational institutions and researchers about the collections and graphic arts.
