It's where you are. Set in a city that attempts to create new value through art, under the mission of "Let it stand out." We aim to realize a society where
■Exhibition concept " The Colors!"
An exhibition that focuses on works with the power of "color" selected from artists licensed by the experimental welfare unit "Heraruboni" .
Art has the existence value in "difference". Rather than being “same” or “normal, ” individual “individuality” is recognized. Difference is the real value. Even if you look around the world, it can be said to all existence that there is no same thing as one. As for human existence , "difference" itself becomes value and colors society. Differences support diversity, and diversity is the power of survival. And above all, "difference" is beautiful.
For example, the color palette of paints and colored pencils can be added, mixed, diluted and stretched by users to create their own colors infinitely.
Color perception also varies from person to person. Since color vision is determined by the relationship between vision and brain, multiple people cannot share the same color vision. What you call red may not be red to me. This “difference” is the value that should be respected.
Although the earth is said to be blue, it is actually a mixture of many colors. Living things, created things, produced things. Already there from the distant past.
All colors are different, and colors are beautiful as they are. Cherish the color of "I", believe in the power of "I", and find the color that "I" like! Let me know where I am!
Let's give power to the color of "I"!

Naoto Iguchi / Naoto Iguchi (Safran Living Garden)
My daily routine is to copy my face and what I like at that time using the convenience store in the city and the copy machine in the facility. By pressing your face against the glass and operating the buttons yourself, and by moving your body along with the movement of the light from the sensor, you create unique distortions on the screen. The sticker that is frequently used in the work is the prize application sticker that was peeled off while working on aluminum cans at the facility, and has been won many times. I've been going to my neighborhood convenience store every day for more than 20 years, and when I'm done, the clerk skillfully wipes the oil from my face off the glass.

Masahiko Kimura (Atelier Yahhoo!!)
Swipe with strong pen pressure. He devised a unique wedge-shaped pattern called Kyuni Kyuni. As a result, the painting has a sense of depth and three-dimensionality. The subjects of his paintings vary from animals to still lifes, but each of his works stands out with his unique painting style. Although his works are highly regarded both at home and abroad, he is indifferent to the noise of the outside world.

■ Co-sponsor's message
Heralbony Co., Ltd. President Takaya Matsuda
Executive Vice President Fumito Matsuda
What we want to realize in the Osaka Semba area is "a future that colors the city with welfare." The energy emitted by the conspicuous person with an intellectual disability makes clothing, food, housing, and the city sparkle. I want you to think about the meaning of the word "obstacle" when confronted with beautiful colors. And I want you to realize that there is no boundary line between welfare and everyday life. Heralbony chose Senba, Osaka as its Kansai base. Intuition. Because I felt that the whole area might be able to create a new standard for the future together with everyone. Diversity, sustainability, inclusion, giving meaning is easy, but giving meaning easily structures the world. In this era of too many meanings, let me carefully deliver "I don't know" together with everyone in Senba.
Tatsuno Co. , Ltd. President and CEO Mitsuhiko Tatsuno
The city of Senba, Osaka, where we have nurtured our business, is historically diverse. As a castle town of Osaka Castle and as a wholesale district, people with various backgrounds have been involved, and commerce and culture and art have been born. In recent years, not only offices but also condominiums have increased, showing a new bustle.
This time, I am excited about the dialogue that will be created by creating a place to express diverse and wonderful individuality with Heralboni and sharing that world view. Both adults and children shine, and we want to color the city for the future together.
Curator, 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa /
Heralbony Co., Ltd. Planning Advisor Mr. Hiromi Kurosawa
I want The Colors! to be an exhibition where you don't have to explain each artist's disability until they are asked about it. In other words, what is good for you is good! I like what I like! I want the viewers to take on the challenge of believing in these values. I want you to find out for yourself, like the writers who paint what ``I'' want to paint, not because ``despite'' or ``because'' they have a disability.
