Welcome signs of renewed life

Local | Bernard Charnwut Chan 18 Mar 2020

A number of Hong Kong cultural facilities - public libraries, the Hong Kong Museum of Art, the Hong Kong Heritage Museum, the Hong Kong Film Archive and Flagstaff House Museum - have reopened on a limited basis after closing because of the coronavirus.

In some cases, interactive exhibits remain closed, and special visiting arrangements are in place to limit the number of people passing through and to allow for extra cleansing.

So check the Leisure and Cultural Services website for a full update. But the good news is that things are at least starting to return to normal.

In the meantime, art fans can continue to enjoy a variety of exhibits when traveling around on the MTR.

Over the past few years interesting new works have been put on display in dozens of stations thanks to the Art in MTR program.

At Ho Man Tin station, you can see FrogScape by Kwok Mang-ho and Cho Hyun Jae - a combination of Chinese ink and brush, calligraphy and graffiti.

At Lei Tung, Castaly Leung Ching-man worked with 40 local students to create a colorful mural called Dawn of a New Day featuring fish found in the waters off Aberdeen.

On the platform at Whampoa there is Lam Tung-pan's History and Imagination - Whampoa. This is a digital collage reflecting the memories of local residents.

And back at Ho Man Tin you can see Alex Heung Kin-fung's Between Nature and the City. These eye-catching acrylic and mosaic works give a unique view of the neighborhood's bird life.
