Orange Island to open heritage center
The exhibition center on Orange Island is under construction and will be completed by the end of the year.
The center has been refurbished from a 100-year-old building, and sports a newly-decorated interior without changing the structure's outside appearance. The overall floor area is 2,023 square meters.
The project was approved by the city government last September and will cost 26.5 million yuan ($3.86 million).
"Not only will it be an exhibition hall for intangible cultural heritages, the center will also become a new attraction on Orange Island,” said Yang Changjiang, leader of the city's administration of press, publication, radio, film and television.
So far, Changsha has opened 15 museums and exhibition halls, highlighting Hunan embroidery, porcelain, flower drum opera, palm weaving and other intangible cultural heritages.
