Other planned Shanghai art projects

SHANGHAI is going to turn itself into "an international cultural metropolis," and as part of it, 16 new major museums and art galleries and many smaller museums will be built by 2015.

After the establishment of art projects, Shanghai will have three major museums - the existing Shanghai Museum, the China Art Palace and the China Contemporary Art Museum - for historic, modern and contemporary artworks.

Also at the former Expo site, the Expo Museum will be built in the former Zone D area and open to the public in 2015.

The SAIC-GM Pavilion will become the Shanghai Children's Art Theater in 2013 and an international dance center will be built near the Hongqiao Development Zone in Changning District.

The archeological museum, Shanghai Songze Historical Relics Museum, will house cultural relics and historical findings from the Songze Culture Ruins, listed as one of the 100 important archeological findings of the 20th century in China. It will open in 2013 in suburban Qingpu District.

Meanwhile, the 15,000-square-meter National Treasures Center in Xuhui District involves relocation of the Shanghai Peking Opera House and the Duoyunxuan Art Center.

After it is completed in 2013, it will be a center for art creation, exchange and trading for art organizations.

Other planned projects include the China Modern and Contemporary News Publication Museum; the Museum of Shanghai History; the Shanghai Intangible Cultural Heritage Center and Shanghai Library (second phase).
