Pingtan opens first international urban sculpture exhibition

The First Pingtan International Urban Sculpture Exhibition was held in Pingtan Sculpture Park in Pingtan, Fujian Province, on Oct 10.

The exhibition, themed "Harmony, Development and Dream", featured 48 master works which had been selected from 19 countries since June, 2013. These exquisite works will be forever kept in Pingtan Sculpture Garden, situated by the south coast of the Zhuyu Lake in Pingtan.

Li Dejin, secretary of Pingtan’s Party Working Committee, and Wang Shengxi, deputy director-general of Fujian Provincial Housing and Urban-Rural Development Department, jointly inaugurated Pingtan Sculpture Park.

“Pingtan not only needs to improve its economic development but also its cultural soft power,” said Chen Dongrong, deputy director of Pingtan’s management committee. “Through this event, Pingtan is expected to get attention from more people.”

“We are glad to leave our sculptures here,” said Xiao Changzheng, a famous artist from Taiwan, “The harmony between art and nature beautifies Pingtan and creates a different city memory for visitors.”
