Symbol Mark

Designer's Intention/Symbol mark designed by Fukuda Shigeo


Within the mark's design, the letter 'I' represents Iwate, 'M' stands for Museum and 'A' represents Art. However, the symbolism of the mark extends beyond pure letters, emphasizing a harmony and balance; which is the main element of its design. The mark acts as a symbol of strength and durability.
The twist in the mark between the letters 'I' and 'M' is representative of tradition and history, while the extension of the 'A' symbolizes our future hopes and boundless dreams.
The color of the letter 'I', which dates back to ancient Japan, (the color scarlet) evokes images of strength (a traditional color in Japanese lacquer ware) and the passion of the Tohoku region.
