Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts

The Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts is the third fine arts museum to be established in Taiwan, following the Taipei Fine Arts Museum and the Taiwan Museum of Art. The Kaohsiung museum is still under development, and only its main gallery building and part of its sculpture park are open so far, but it has already become a major part of the Taiwan art scene. It first opened its doors in June of 1994; and since it was the last of the island's three main art museums, it has been able to encompass the latest of modern thinking in such areas as native history, community consciousness, and an emphasis on environmental landscaping. In external form the overall structure has a long horizontal appearance, with a long front corridor that delineates an open-air theater for outdoor performances and displays of large sculptures. This is also a place for the people of Kaohsiung to go and relax. Among the treasures in the museum's collection are Water Buffalo Herd, which is the last work completed prior to his death by Huang Tu-shui, who is known the father of Taiwan sculpture a warrior from the French sculptor Bourdelle's Montauban and a standing stone Buddha.
