Hong Kong to be 'dressed up' by 'blossoming stairs'

Updated 2017-04-06 14:00:47 Xinhua

Hong Kong launched Wednesday an outdoor art project that aims to “dress up” the city by decorating 20 stairways at various landmarks with paintings of flowers.

The art project, named “City Dress Up: Blossoming Stairs”, was launched to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR).

The stairways will be decorated by images sourced from famous flower-themed paintings or artefacts selected from the collection of the Hong Kong Museum of Art.

The decorations will be changed each season from March to December, allowing visitors to view a total of 80 different designs across the four seasons, Hong Kong's Secretary for Home Affairs Lau Kong-wah said at the launching ceremony.

The artworks selected for decorating the stairways cover a great variety of works including traditional Chinese paintings, historical pictures from the 19th century, contemporary art pieces and antiquities such as textiles, lacquer ware and bamboo carvings.
