It is dedicated to breaking down the old ideas of physical artworks and venues to treat homes as art spaces, fields as canvases, agricultural products as works of art, and farmers as artists. Taking the water buffalo as the spiritual symbol of the area, the museum strives to promote community environmental improvement and to call forth shared memories of people regarding their home town.
