An Artist's Playground, Taipei, Taiwan (B)

Taipei is an artist's playground with many art areas and creative parks around the city. If you love the arts, then Taipei is a great place to visit. Here are a few that we visited.

No.10 Chengdu Rd.,Wanhua District,Taipei City Sunday to Thursday 11AM to 930PM (Closed on Mondays)Friday and Saturday 11AM to 10PM

This red brick building (thus the name "The Red House") was built in 1908 as a marketplace where flowers, books, medicine, and produce can be bought. Today it continues as a market, but a market for artists to sell their creations. The Red House also has tea shop on the first floor and a theater on the second.

Why Village? Taipei Artist Village is where artists, local or otherwise, can converge. It is where they can take residency, create art, and exhibit art. Only the exhibit hall and the coffee shop (called Village Cafe) are open to the public.
