Introduction -

The Art Museum was first opened on March 24th 2008, and is a unique part of the university. Our focus is on planning special exhibitions, maintaining and forging partnerships with other museums, public relations, marketing and other museum related consulting services. We also place importance on museum collection research and art education programs. We hope to strategically expand our programs for museum and art education, and by doing so we will play an important role as an ‘art center’.

The concept behind our museum architectural design is to create an “Integrated space”. The main museum is 210 square feet, the International Exhibition Hall is 96 square feet, the Dahan Gallery and the Daguan Gallery are 99 square feet respectively, and finally the Zhenshanmei Gallery is 96 square feet. These 4 rooms in total are 600 square feet. Every year several special exhibitions are planned every year in addition to there being close to over100 other events for students and the public to attend.

Art Museum hopes to enhance professional curatorship, update the quality of our exhibition space and museum service for artists, school teachers and students alike. They have the opportunity to share their art works and talents in the museum space. This method of sharing also hopes to inspire museum visitors to know more about the creation and the aesthetics of contemporary art. Our aim is to serve as a model teaching resource center, ensuring the delivery of lifelong learning and social education. Art Museum looks forward to cooperating and partnering with artists, academic institutions and engaging in international exchange activities. We believe this will help teachers, students and the public to develop a multicultural perspective and their critical-thinking.
