In Celebration of the New Xinyi Line and a Public Art Festival, DORTS Offers "A Guide to Public Art on the Taipei Rapid Transit Systems"
To highlight artistic elements of the Xinyi line and encourage the general public to discover the beauty of artworks along the route, Taipei City Department of Rapid Transit Systems (DORTS) is providing the "Treasure Hunt Map of the Xinyi Line Public Art" and "A Guide to Public Art on the Taipei Rapid Transit Systems." These free, limited edition pamphlets are available from December 11, 2013, at all stations on the Xinyi line between Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall Station and Xiangshan Station.
For the treasure hunting activity, DORTS is offering stamps that commemorate the opening of the Xinyi line at five stations along the route: Dongmen, Daan Park, Daan, Xinyi/Anhe, and Taipei 101/World Trade Center. The general public is welcome to stamp these on the treasure hunt map.
The artwork guide is available in both Chinese and English and contains images and statements of public artworks. The general public is welcome to request one from DORTS or search for related information on the DORTS website (http://www.dorts.gov.tw/ct.asp?xItem=68344829&CtNode=69440&mp=115001)
