Pasona Heartful is a special exception subsidiary company of the Pasona Group which supports employment for disabled people. Under the concept of "Talent Knows No Handicap" and with the aim of expanding work opportunities for those who have difficulty finding employment (including in the arts), twenty-one intellectually challenged employees create paintings as "Art Mura Artists" under the tutelage of Tokie Aizawa.
Motifs and materials for this exhibition are based on the various locations in the hotel where each piece is displayed. Japanese sweets were created for the 2nd floor main lobby area to compliment the open dining venue; paintings and drawings on the third floor mezzanine level depict traditional summer festivals and flowers are featured on the first floor.
