Modern Art

The World through #Tech Eyes

The #Tech world – always communicating behind glass, usually with filters distorting the view.  Looking each other face – to – face might help us see one another more clearly.

#ModernArt ~ From Dirt to Design

Living the Dream 

​The Art students at my university are allowed to paint random building walls here on campus to show off their skills.  This one is dedicate to tee Chinese president – lots of support and nationalism here!

Oriental Pearl Tower

Perhaps one of the most famous landmarks in China, running parallel to the Forbidden City and the Great Wall is Shanghai’s great Oriental Pearl Tower (Dongfang Mingzhuta). Standing bright and beautiful in the Lujiazui area along the Huangpu River, the Pearl Tower is on almost every landmark postcard, movie cityscape, and Shanghai tourist items. It was once accidentally moved to Hong Kong on a US movie poster and the Chinese people were understandably horrified. Built in 1994, this tower was the tallest structure in China up until 2007, and is still one of China’s top ranked “things to see.” Viewers however are recommended to come early, early, early in the morning if you want to beat the lines. 

Hours are from 8:30am – 9:30pm

If you want to go clear up to the “Space Module” it’s 220RMB ($33). If you just do the upper observatories it’s 160RMB ($24).
