Founded on June 26, 1988, the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (國立臺灣美術館) under the Ministry of Culture (文化部) celebrates its 33rd anniversary this year. The one-month celebration event will be scaled down in response to the Covid-19 nationwide level 3 alert and epidemic prevention measures.

The blessing ceremony of "Praying for Blessings. ", which debuted yesterday, is a response to the epidemic. The ceremony is simple but grand. It is based on "gratefulness, praying for blessings, and abolish evil (感恩、祈福、解厄)" in Wu Li-yu's (吳李玉) work "Harvest Festival (豐年祭)".
