Taipei, Aug. 25 (CNA) Changhua Magistrate Wei Ming-ku on Monday unveiled a public
installation artwork by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama at the newly built train station in Yuanlin in the hope of boosting the county’s tourism and economy.
At a ceremony that marked the upgrade of Yuanlin from a town to a city, Wei said the 1.3 meter tall sculpture shoe was of special significance and would become part of Changhua’s history.
The sculpture, titled “Let’s Go and See Our boyfriends in High Heels,” depicts a red polka dot shoe that holds a giant flower.
It stands in the plaza in front of Taiwan Railway Administration’s (TRA) new train station in Yuanlin, a central Taiwan area that now has a rail service for the first time. [FULL STORY]
