Sculpture exhibition gets laser treatment

LASER alarm systems will be put in place to protect dozens of artworks by Chinese and overseas artists during a sculpture exhibition from September 1 in Jing'an District.

Some of the sculptures are reportedly worth more than 10 million yuan (US$1.47 million).

The exhibition, which will last two months, has attracted world famous artists like Arman Pierre Fernandez, who created the "Horse" sculpture in front of Shanghai Exhibition Center, Philippe Hiquily, and Arne Quinze.

Sixty-five pieces will be on display at 10 locations including Jing'an Sculpture Park, Moller Villa, Jing'an Villa and Plaza 66.

Insurance for each sculpture has been purchased.

Along with the laser alarm systems, security guards will patrol sculpture locations from time to time, according to Li Zhen, a Jing'an government official.
