No.2, Xishihu, Jinshan Dist., New Taipei City 20842, Taiwan R.O.C.
Ju Ming (朱銘), originally named Ju Chuan-Tai (朱川泰), is an internationally renowned master sculptor. In the beginning, this was not a museum, but rather a storage space for his large sculptures. Inspired by the natural surroundings of Jinshan, Ju Ming decided this would be an ideal setting for an art park. Juming Museum doesn't just display his unique works of art, but also serves as a venue for the cultivation of artists' creativity.
The museum occupies a total of 11 hectares, and its outdoor exhibition space is divided into Taichi Plaza, Human World Square and Sport Square. Juming’s work in the museum can be ascribed to several series: the Nativist (鄉土) Series, Taichi (太極) Series, and Living World (人間) Series. Each series reflects the core values of the master’s attitude toward his life and his art. Those sculptures of his Taichi series displayed in the Taichi Plaza are regarded as the best and the most famous of his work. The building of the museum is like a pyramid, a work of art in itself, displaying his indoor pieces of woodcarving and pottery as well as works by his mentors.
Even though Juming is over 70 years old, he still dedicates himself, with his abundant energy and passion, to his art. For him, art is not only a spiritual discipline of his aesthetic experience, but also his guiding belief throughout his life.
The whole park is a work of art for appreciation, inspiration, and recreation. A visit here will surely be an stirring experience, as you realize the labor of love the artist has undertaken to produce these works over the decades.
