A hundred sculptures were unveiled recently in a new park in Shanghai.
The park in Pudong district's picturesque Dishui Lake area celebrates the evolution and diversity of Chinese sculptures throughout several decades.
Featured artists include pre-eminent figures in modern Chinese art, such as Liu Kaiqu, the first director of the National Art Museum of China, who was trained in China and France, Pan He and Sheng Yang.
Works by leading contemporary artists, such as Wu Weishan and Li Xiangqun, as well as up-and-comers, are also on show.
The park was built to make art more accessible for urbanites. It's intended to serve not only as a hot spot for photos but also for aesthetic education.
