Cheng Shifa museum to have trial run

The Cheng Shifa Art Museum in Changning District is likely to open for a trial run later this month, the city’s publicity department announced at a symposium with local CPPCC members yesterday.

Cheng Shifa (1921-2007), one of the founders of Shanghai-style modern art, donated more than 100 of his works and over 200 by other Chinese masters to the nation.

Construction of the museum began in September 2017 and its basic facilities are almost complete.

Wang Yayuan, deputy head of the department, revealed that at least six major construction programs involving local cultural sites will be completed in the next few years. 

The old Wanping Theater will be expanded with new sections to provide more functions in addition to shows. With the old building being dismantled, a new and larger building will be established. It’s due for completion by next year-end.

The new branch of Shanghai Children’s Library and Shanghai Library will be done before July 2021. The site of the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China will also be expanded by July 2021.

The basic construction of the new branch of Shanghai Museum will be finished in 2021.

The Shanghai Grand Opera House, construction for which will start this month, will be put into use by the end of 2024.
