For one day only, visitors to the Kitakagaya area of Osaka will be able to witness the surreal and amusing sight of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman’s 9.5 meter tall Rubber Duck floating in the harbor. Kitakagaya is the beloved duck’s hometown, and it makes its way back to Osaka each year for a visit.

The gigantic, inflatable sculpture is the face of Suminoe Art Beat, which will take place on Sunday, November 13 of this year.

The fun and lively art festival will also feature multiple art exhibits, youth stage performances, and a market run by Kitakagaya’s community farming project Minna Noeun.

Visitors will be able to experience a vivid digital art display by creator Haruhisa Nakatani, spanning the white walls of the exhibition space. This interactive exhibit will create colorful designs by tracing the individual movements of those in the space.

There will also be ceramic art displays, including a unique work by artist Yoshiko Naragino made up of over one hundred vividly decorated ceramic disks, as well as a unique ceramic-filled space by artist Maho Kitaura. All three artists are based in Kitakagaya.
