As a tribute to contemporary Chinese culture and to support local art development, art gallery-masquerading hotel, Langham Place, Mongkok, Hong Kong launches the Red Guards – Moving Forward! photo competition on its Facebook fan page (@Langham Place, Mongkok, Hong Kong) to embrace the summer holiday season and echo its vision to build great memories for its guests.
Inspired by the hotel’s contemporary Chinese art collection, guests are invited to take photos with the iconic Red Guards - Moving Forward! Making Money! sculpture by Jiang Shuo on the ground level lobby of the hotel, for chances to be in its uniquely designed collage and win a two-night stay along with a food and beverage voucher and Chuan Spa voucher.
Photos submitted will be used to create a replica of the Red Guard comprising thousands of mini images, which will be displayed as another signature art piece for the hotel.
Continuing its efforts to give back, Langham Place Hotel will donate HK$1 per photo collected from now until 30 September 2013 to a well reputed art charity in support of the local art community.
