A bamboo installation exhibition is underway at bridges in Taitung County, offering a fresh
take on the historic structures and promoting the stunning natural landscapes in the northeastern part of the region.
Organized by the East Coast National Scenic Area Administration of the Tourism Bureau under the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, the seven-month event features bamboo-weaving pieces by artists Kaling and Elen Luluwan from the Amis and Rukai indigenous ethnic groups, respectively.
ECNSAA Director Trust Lin said Nov. 9 that the event will build on the momentum of the first Taiwan Land Art Festival, which wrapped up Oct. 11 and proved popular with visitors and locals alike.
“We hope to sustain people’s interest in the combination of spectacular natural scenes and captivating works of art, as well as further promote these old bridges, which are listed as historic monuments by the Bureau of Cultural Heritage under the Ministry of Culture.” [FULL STORY]
