As a Japanese cultural center, RESOBOX welcomes its doors to Manhattan's and Queens' diverse populations with its art exhibitions, classes, events and more that center Japan's artistic influence. Taking its name from a portmanteau of the words "resonate" and "box," RESOBOX is a space for artists to collaborate and innovate.
