Chew’s Culture Foundation
Upon the proposal of Prof. Ma Shui-long, Chew’s Culture Foundation was founded in 1991. In its initial establishment, it served as a venue for the presentation of original Taiwanese music by the holding of two events annually, the “Euterpe: Spring & Autumn”. Many years of careful cultivation and hard work earned praises from every sector in the society, and in 1998, it won the Special Honor of the first Council Sponsors Award from the Council for Cultural Affairs. Deeply encouraged by these achievements, Chairman Andrew Chew also placed great expectations in promoting the integration of music and visual arts, making it his mission for his work to take root in the community in honor of his late father, Hong-gah. Thus, the Hong-gah Museum was established.
Founded in 1991, Chew’s Culture Foundation, in addition to its dedicated promotion of Spring Autumn Music to encourage and cultivatedomestic professionalmusic composers, established Hong-Gah Museum in 1999. With exhibitions, campaigns, inter-disciplinary performances, and so forth, the Museum provides an art appreciation venue of quality as well as sows seeds of art for the local community. Having opened for more than 14 years, the Museum received its membership as one of the Local Cultural Museums of Ministry of Culture in 2003. Furthermore, the Museum has been recognized many times with “Arts & Business Awards” and “Taipei Culture Award”.
Hong-Gah Museum has long been devoting itself to educational courses and lectures to promote aesthetic education in the community.On top of that, it serves as a platform for the showcase of contemporary art via regular themed events such as the biennale “Taiwan International Video Art Exhibition” and solo exhibitions of artists from home and abroad. Hong-Gah Museum expectsitself to be the starting point of profound art cultivation, through the promotion of community culture,elevating the spiritual life of the public and ultimately demonstrating local community’s cultural landscape in warmth and of humanity.
