City’s spirit on show at ‘Steel Plant’

New art installations were launched at the Columbia Circle in Changning District yesterday to promote the city’s spirit of persistence and resilience.

The “Steel Plant” exhibition features interactive facilities such as drums, exercisers, a wish blessing wall and as a food and drinks bar. Residents and tourists are invited to complete four challenges to cheer themselves up in winter. The exhibition will be open to the public free between 11am and 8pm through February 3.

They can illuminate an art installation with dragons and tigers by striking drums in front of the former Navy Club, once a gathering and social place for Americans.

They are encouraged to do exercises on outdoor spin bikes or elliptical machines, as well as speak their new year wishes at another installation which will create colorful bubbles.

After completing the challenges and games, visitors can win credits to exchange for gifts or drinks and food at the bar.

The exhibition aims to empower the historical architecture with vitality and life, according to Vanke, operator of the renovation project.

The Columbia Circle project is owned by the Shanghai Institute of Biological Products on Yan’an Road W. near Panyu Road.
