Supporting Special “Midsummer Night Media Facade” Exhibit at the Savina Museum
From July to October 2019, Epson Korea Co., Ltd. (EKL) leveraged the value of Epson laser projectors and large-format inkjet printers in support of a special exhibit of works of art on an endangered species motif. At this exhibition, EKL contributed technology that made possible new productions and expressions that conveyed a message surrounding the co-existence of humans and nature through works such as paintings, photographs, objects, images, and 3D animation. The powerful images of living organisms suffering from marine plastic waste gave many visitors that came to the exhibition a strong incentive to think about the environment.
Supporting the Seiji Ozawa Matsumoto Festival (Japan)
Seiko Epson has been a special corporate sponsor of the annual Seiji Ozawa Matsumoto Festival (originally the Saito Kinen Festival Matsumoto) since its inception, in 1992. The festival, which runs from August through early September in Matsumoto, Japan, was organized to promote music and the arts among the nation’s youth.
In addition to regular concerts during the festival’s run, there were special concert events, including symphonic tales, geared towards sixth-graders and seventh-graders. In 2019, these events were attended by a total of 12,610 students from 211 schools in Nagano prefecture. This educational program was designed to further the education and development of youth. Performed by young musicians, they are a valuable opportunity for the youth to hear live orchestra music, thus serving as a catalyst for interest in classical music.
