The Guangzhou Sculpture Park is China's largest thematic sculpture park, at 113 acres. It was built by the Guangzhou Municipal People's Government in 1996 in commemoration of the 2210th anniversary of the founding of Guangzhou Town. The sculptures feature gardening, ornamental, educational, artistic and historic themes.
Within this sculpture park is the Tang Daxi Sculpture Park which was approved in 2006 by the Municipal Government, displaying a collection of sited works by the prominent Chinese realist sculptor Tang Daxi. The works depict patriotic and historic themes.
With its elegant environment and vast variety of sculptures, the Guangzhou Sculpture Park is a showcase of Guangzhou's history and Lingnan's cultural features.
Music events, including the Guangzhou Jazz and World Music Festival, are scheduled in the sculpture park.
Created for the Beijing Olympics in 2008, this sculpture park covers an area of 680 hectares and displays around 80 works by national and international artists, representing the Olympic spirit: Higher, Faster and Stronger. Some works are figurative, showing traditional sports, and additionally there are architectural installations and contemporary sculpture throughout the park. The landscape design was led by Hu Jie, director of the Landscape Planning and Design Institute at Tsinghua University. Opened to the public May 2009.
The Pan He Sculpture Park, which opened to the public in 2008, is thought of as one of the largest sculpture parks dedicated to displaying the works of a single artist. Over sixty pieces of Pan's work are sited.
Pan He is a professor at the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Art. His works, including Hard Time, Zhuhai Fisherwoman, and a statue of soldiers commemorating the Liberation of Guangzhou, primarily feature historical themes. As a Chinese realist sculptor, Pan takes sculpture as a method of serving political movements, depicting the social and political life of the country.
