Since its opening in 2007, Cross Hotel Sapporo has been giving a series of art exhibition of the “ART X (cross)”. From 2011, the ART X has featured the Hokkaido-based artists and shown their artworks to the world in collaboration with SHIFT.

During the Sapporo City Jazz, you will enjoy jazz music in the later part of June at the Cross Hotel Sapporo. Please enjoy artworks by Hokkaido-based artists, which express their own jazz world, along with the fantastic music.
