Start Museum is pleased to announce that START STATION, the first art train will open to public at 3 pm on July 23rd, 2023.
As China’s first railway station operated by sea and transported by land, Ri Hui Port Warehouse, the original site of the Start Museum, was built in 1907, which was the most positive response to the progressive culture and science and technology of China’s last feudal dynasty in the change of the world times. Through a hundred years of ups and downs, the train carries a deep shared memory of the people of this land. In 2023, Start Museum reactivates this field with the new concept of «art train», so the green coach train that has been eliminated by history can once again carry the youth and ideals of the new era. This will be an art train sent to the future by the Start Museum, and it will also renew the new history of art life and era culture here! Starting in Xu Hui Bin Jiang, Start Museum strives to present a variety of cutting-edge contemporary art research and exhibitions to the audience. START STATION is committed to conducting art education activities that stimulate interest and inspire thinkingin children, adults, families, and groups. The activities cover a variety of interactive courses, including artistic thinking skills training, creative handicraft workshop, special guided tour, etc., to provide unique art experience activities for children and families. With the educational philosophy of respecting individuality, focusing on experiments, and putting experience before experience, Start Museum strives to develop art activities that children, families, and adults can participate in. To transform seemingly difficult artistic language into public-friendly creative inspiration in a more vivid and easyto-understand teaching way, and to imagine and write a new future of art together.
