Asia-Pacific Art Center for Nusa Dua

Ground Breaking Ceremonies Held for Asia-Pacific Art Center at Nusa Dua.


Asia-Pacific Art Center at Nusa Dua On Tuesday, September 6, 2005, ground-breaking ceremonies were held inside the Nusa Dua Complex for a magnificent new museum scheduled to open in June 2006.

Asia Pacific Art Centre, located within the Nusa Dua Complex, will cover a total 12,600 meters comprised of a museum, gallery, and cafť. Planners are targeting that more than 200 works by local artists together with the works of artists from Australia, Japan, China, Tahiti and other Asia-Pacific nations will eventually be on display at the modern museum designed by the renowned Indonesian architect Popo Danes.

With an estimated construction cost of Rp. 5 billion (approximately US$476,000), the Pacific Art Center will join a number of existing museums of fine art in Bali, including the Neka Museum, Agung Rai Museum, Rudana Museum, Le Mayeur Museum, and Nyoman Gunarsaís Bali International Museum of Classical and Modern Art.

One of the initiators for the new project, Mr. Moetarytanto P., said at the ground breaking ceremony for the new Centre that the establishment of the new museum "would contribute to the promotion of Balinese, Indonesian and Indo-European Art, as well as establishing the reference of Bali as a center for Art and Culture in Asia."

Nyoman Suteja Neka, the founder of the famous Neka Museum in Ubud and an Advisor the Bali Museum Society (HIMUSBA), welcome the steps to establish the first museum in Nusa Dua showing the world that Nua Dua is not just a home to large hotels.

Popo Danes, the architect for the project, said the museum will demonstrate Bali and Nusa Dua's concern for the development of arts on the island.
