Ju Ming Museum 朱銘美術館: Sculpting Memories

Hundreds of incredible sculptures await at the Ju Ming Museum 朱銘美術館 in New Taipei City.

I’m always impressed at the quality and diversity of Taiwan’s museums.  Some people find museums to be too droll, but I love exploring them.  The Ju Ming Museum 朱銘美術館 in New Taipei City may sound like a typical art museum at first, but it is a far cry from many others.  The museum houses the sculptures and artwork of Taiwanese sculptor Ju Ming, whose career has spanned nearly 50 years.  In that time, he has created hundreds of sculptures from bronze, metal, stone, and probably dozens of other materials.  Not only are the pieces ambitious and stunning, but the museum also serves as a nice outdoor activity on a clear day.  Check out more info after the jump.

Keeping up with every single art show or event is a hard task in Taipei.  There are countless galleries and festivals that you can easily miss them if you are not paying attention.  One I didn’t want to miss this year is Very Fun Park 粉樂町 in Taipei.  Despite its name, it’s not actually a park, but instead a myriad of public art projects scattered around Taipei.  I went to it last year and was amazed, so how does this year stack up?  Find more info after the jump.

Ever wish it was -4 C/25 F at the dawn of spring?  The Taipei exhibit Fantasy Ice World 台北冰雪世界 will help you live those dreams.  Several sculptures imported from Harbin, China, are making their temporary home in a freezing warehouse in Taipei’s technology center.  Look over the scene from the icy Great Wall, stroll through a frozen pyramid, or have a rest in an all-ice cafe after the jump.
