Li Zongwei is a senior leader with Shandong University of Arts.
"Today, the Yimeng mountain area has already shaken off poverty. These pieces of art try to reflect new changes, new progress and new achievements in Yimeng. In addition to Beijing, the exhibition will also be held in cities like Jinan, Weifang and Linyi of East China's Shandong province. This art exhibition means more than just a display of the economic and cultural achievements in Shandong, and it also inspires the public to pool strength in bringing new cultural development and prosperity in this area."
Li's university also contributed a piece of art entitled Six Sisters from Yimeng to the exhibition. And the Chinese Museum of Women and Children reportedly plans to house this painting for its historic value.
A total of over 100 pieces of artworks involved Chinese painting, printmaking, watercolor, experimental art, have been gathered from all over China and are now on display in the Today Art Museum in Beijing.
