Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts

The Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts is located within the Neiweipi Cultural Park in Gushan District.  It is the third public museum of fine arts in Taiwan, and it was officially opened in June 1994.  The Outdoor Sculpture Park displays sculptures from different periods, while inside the museum is a collection of significant local artworks.  International art exhibitions are often held here, along with art by local artists and a variety of creative forums.  The square and outdoor café outside the Museum provide a natural space for visitors to relax, with a Children's Museum of Arts and Creativity and a "Kids' Artistic Garden".  All these facets come together to transform the Museum into a multi-functional leisure park, combining arts, culture, creativity, ecology and education.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
