    Twenty four sculptures created using various materials by Vietnamese and foreign artists are taking part in a contest titled “Honoring Hoi An’s cultural heritage.”


    They will be on display at the Hoi An Cultural Museum from now until the end of November for public voting.

    The winners of the contest organized by the Hoi An People’s Committee and Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Association will be announced on the 10th Anniversary of the central town’s recognition as a world cultural heritage by Unesco in December next year.

    A VND1.1 trillion (US$65.5 million) program to preserve Hoi An will be carried out from 2009 to 2020, Dr. Tran Minh Duc, director of the Central Region Sub-Institute of Construction Technology and Science, said.
