800 volunteers recruited for city's new art spaces

SHANGHAI today recruited 800 volunteers for the China Art Palace and China Contemporary Art Museum, the two major cultural venues of the city to open in October.
The volunteers will explain and guide visitors of the two venues and help prepare exhibitions and also manage other volunteers.
Some professional volunteers who were painters and retired art teachers will hold lectures for visitors, the Shanghai Municipal Administration of Culture, Radio, Film & TV said today.
The volunteers were chosen from a total of 2,415 candidates who include university students, office workers, retired art lovers, teachers and painters.
They will take training courses in August and September before going on duty during trial operations of the venues on October 1.
The city government will recruit another batch of volunteers after the opening of the museums.
The palace, to be the most important art gallery of the city, has been renovated from the Expo 2010's China Pavilion in the Pudong New Area, while the contemporary art museum stands on the opposite bank of the Huangpu River in a 100-year-old power plant featuring the "weather chimney" from the World Expo site.
