Beidaihe, a renowned summer retreat by the Bohai Bay in Hebei province, is poised to unveil the innovative Butong Art Town, a groundbreaking public art project designed to offer unparalleled cultural and immersive tourism experiences to visitors.

The grand inauguration of the town will feature a captivating one-man show by Zhang Zhanzhan, a prominent figure in contemporary art celebrated for his distinctive style characterized by simple, soft lines, a striking interplay of red and black hues, and poignant depictions of mute yet endearing animals, exploring themes of solitude and connection.

Titled You're Always on My Mind, the exhibition, running until Oct 31, will showcase over 60 of Zhang's works, including paintings, sculptures, open-air installations, and visual art pieces.

In addition to Zhang's exhibition, the event will spotlight the latest graduation works from esteemed art academies in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai and Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, drawing attention for their creativity and innovation. These showcases, stemming from the renowned art schools' ongoing graduation exhibitions, have captivated audiences and emerged as a cultural phenomenon.

Furthermore, the event will offer a glimpse into the creative processes of resident artists at the art town, as they craft and exhibit works inspired by Beidaihe's rich history, natural landscapes, and local life. This immersive experience promises to blend artistry with the region's essence, fostering a dynamic dialogue between artists and their surroundings within the vibrant cultural tapestry of Butong Art Town.
