Monday 11th Jul, 2016
Buffalo Arts Studio2495 Main Street, Suite 500 Buffalo, NY 14214
An exhibition of student artwork by Buffalo’s newest Sister City, Changzhou, China. The elementary school student artists are all members of Changzhou Tomato Farmer Art Center, where they take formal painting classes. They were asked to paint what the U.S. or China looks like in their mind. Some took the assignment further, imagining Buffalo or Changzhou in a variety of interesting ways.
BAS will exhibit 22 works of art by these students to promote cross-cultural learning for both cities. Changzhou’s prime time television station will lead a crew of 25 people to film a “Tale of Two Cities” here in Buffalo, documenting the Sister City relationship between Buffalo and Changzhou with a focus on the arts and culture.
Changzhou is committed to the promotion of exchanges with their 22 sister cities in areas of business, arts, and education and recognizes the important role of cultural sites like Buffalo Arts Studio to Buffalo and the surrounding region. Officials from Changzhou, the City of Buffalo, and the Buffalo China Sister Cities will be present at the opening reception for special recognition ceremony at 3:30 pm.
The Changzhou China Children’s Art Exhibit will be on display at the Buffalo Arts Studio from July 11 through August 2, 2016.More Information Facebook Event Find Prepaid Parking
