Louvre Museum, the world’s oldest art museum, is set to open its new glass-enclosed museum in Shanghai next month, with a budget of $8 million to make the collection of $1.4 billion worth of Sunglass, Sunglasses, Sunglass Shoes, Sunglauge and other glasses.
The $800,000, 30-seat museum will open on July 23, 2020, and will feature a total of 100,000 square feet of space.
The collection will be available for viewing in the Louvre’s museum-like glass gallery.
The museum, which is located on a site next to the Louvain Palace in Paris, is part of a larger project by Louvre to build a museum of the world of art in China, the Louvees said.
The Louvre has long been a hub for art, and its new Shanghai museum will showcase more than 500 works by some of the most celebrated artists of the past century.
The new collection will feature the work of the likes of Alexander Calder, Damien Hirst, Michaelangelo, Damien Seurat, Pablo Picasso, John Galliano, Damien Aragon, Vincent van Gogh, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Jean-Luc Godard.
Louvre is a world leader in the design and production of artworks and is the largest of its kind in the world.
The current collection of nearly 1,000 works by art directors, painters, sculptors, painter-painters, and graphic artists is valued at more than $400 billion.
The Shanghai museum is expected to be the largest in the history of the Louvelles.
