2017 Confucius Institute Day: A Window on China

In celebration of Global Confucius Institute Day, CIUMN hosted a Chinese painting and calligraphy exhibit on September 21 at the McNamara Alumni Center. A Window on China featured works by painter, Daiping Xiong, and calligrapher, Jin We. Both artists traveled to the U.S. from China to showcase their exhibit, which included pieces made especially for this exhibit. Before coming to Minnesota, both artists showcased their works to audiences in Alabama and Arkansas.

In addition to time dedicated for visitors to view the gallery, visitors also had the opportunity to converse with artists about their works, enjoy a reception, and listen to a lecture in Chinese while both artists demonstrated painting and calligraphy. The night ended with two lucky winners taking home art pieces created during the lecure and demonstration. One of the giveaways was a beautiful ink painting of Minnesota.
