The Art of Zhen Shan Ren : (Free admission) Other events...
In a confused world still tainted by a gross abuse of humanity, 18 artists have found a peaceful yet powerful way to express their wish for the end to the largest humanitarian concern in the world today through a return to traditional culture and values.

The artists in this exhibition are painting from their conscience and understanding of the greater good. Their works range widely, from placid inner visions to social realities, and combine to provide a unique window into one important (and often untold) part of the current chapter in Chinese history. The artworks tell the story of the tens of millions of practitioners of Falun Gong, an ancient meditation practice that is currently brutally persecuted by the Chinese communist regime. The paintings touch on the deeper levels of human dignity and freedom, and depict the modern triumph of good over evil.

"Our art comes from a pure heart and our work reflects our personal experience. Art is able to greatly influence the way people think and it also directly connects with human morality. The two interact." Professor Zhang Kunlun, founder of The Art of Zhen Shan Ren International Exhibition

The exhibit encompasses four main themes: harmony, adversity, courage and justice. It is art that aspires to inform and educate, to inspire and transform, to change and reshape. The Art of Zhen Shan Ren tells the true stories of those who uphold universal values and freedom, stories from which we can all learn valuable lessons and strengthen our awareness of what is truly important. The unique quality and significance of this exhibit serves to both inform and culturally enrich.
