In order to express our gratitude to our museum members for their strong support of China’s cultural arts, the Six Arts Museum provided a free one floor guided tour to museum annual pass members in March.
Six Arts Museum was founded by Mr. Mitch Dudek, who is from the United States. Mitch has spent more than 40 years collecting over 100,000 pieces of traditional Chinese folk art pieces, and displays his beloved collections here at Six Arts Museum. The exhibition area of the museum is more than 18,000 square meters and displays about 40,000 pieces of a wide variety traditional folk art pieces.
The collections are so diverse and the quantity is so large that the Six Arts Museum's team has spent years studying the collections and uncovering the stories behind them. It is their research that can provide visitors with a more informative guided tour, allowing visitors to appreciate not only the beauty of the collections, but also the stories behind the collections.
We chose the fifth floor as the free guided floor in Mrach. On this floor, there are door gods, ancient beds, cabinets, chairs, ancient windows and so on. All these exquisite carvings and paintings of people in ancient China highlight their wisdom and excellent aesthetics.
In order to encourage the dissemination of knowledge concerning the museum’s collection, several Six Arts volunteers were also invited to participate in this activity. The tour provided the volunteers with an opportunity to obtain training and gain a more comprehensive and in-depth understanding of the museum's collections, which will enable them to better help visitors in the future.
We hope that more and more friends who love traditional culture and folk art can get together regularly in the Six Arts Museum, to both share and learn more about traditional culture, and to appreciate and keep alive ancient folk arts.
