    "New, new and even more new." That is what the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (formerly Taiwan Museum of Art) is declaring this season. With its grand re-opening this summer, it is the place to go to relieve yourself of the summer heat. Treat yourself to an spiritual spa, soaking in the beauty of the museum's fine collection of art, which ranges from the Ming Dynasty to the 20th century. Striving for a sleek and modern look, the renovations were based on usage of glass materials. An attempt to enter what used to be the main museum entrance will bring you an new entrance, hidden between translucent glass. Look for a marked spot on the wall to find the door. The rest of the museum has similarly been revamped and upgraded. This month, the "Danlu Exhibit", displaying 10 different themes of art work, challenges visitors to "listen" to what pieces are saying and what the artist is trying to convey. The first floor is also displaying the "Navigator--Digital Art In the Making" exhibit, gathering creations from all over the world. This eye-opening and thought-provoking exhibit combines both the digital and artistic worlds. One undiscovered treasure at the museum is the Information Center, which has also been revamped, and includes of thousands of English and Chinese art-related books and magazines. The museum bulletin board (and Compass Magazine) will list future exhibits. --Cheng Lishea, Translated by Teresa Cheng
