Another New Landmark in Zhengzhou Starts Construction

On the morning of March 1, the commencement ceremony of the new construction project of the Henan Art Museum was held on Kewen 1st Street, Zhengdong New Area, Zhengzhou.

Planned by the People's Government of Henan Province, the new construction project of the Henan Art Museum is a key provincial project in terms of public culture for 2022, with a planned total construction area of about 42,000 square meters and an investment of RMB 290 million. The project aims to build a modern and intelligent art museum featuring collection, academic research, exchange exhibition, public education, cultural creativity, and other functions, so as to be able to undertake national and international art exhibitions and academic exchange activities and develop a new cultural landmark in the Central Plains.

Founded in 1985, Henan Art Museum is the only provincial art museum in Henan. It shoulders the social responsibility and historical mission of keeping Henan's fine arts and treasures for collection, research, and exhibition, carrying out quality education for the public, promoting international cultural exchanges, and advancing the development of Henan's fine arts. However, the constraints of construction scale and functional structure have hindered the Henan Art Museum in development.

The new site of the Henan Art Museum will be built relying on the abundant art resources inherited from the Zhongyuan (Central Plains of China) culture and Yellow River civilization, based in Henan, targeting the whole country and connecting the world. Focusing on the cultural image, connotation needs, and geographical advantages in national central city construction, it will be developed into a museum of plastic arts with an international vision and distinctive local features, combined with collection, research, exhibition, education, exchange, and service.
