Entrance of museum
Ishikawa Prefectural Museum of Art (石川県立美術館 Ishikawa Kenritsu Bijutsukan ) or IPMA  is a prefectural art museum in central Honshū. It is in Kanazawa, Ishikawa. It was built on the edge of the Kenrokuen Garden near the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa.
The museum acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits a collection of art which includes some of the prefecture's most important cultural assets and works by artists with some connection to the region.
IPMA was first opened in 1959. When the collection outgrew its original building, a new one was built. The current structure was completed in 1983.
