Chinese Calligraphy Live! A Demonstration by Liu Zhenxiong Beck Hall 301

Liu Zhenxiong, an artist from Hohot, Inner Mongolia, will share his passion for art and calligraphy in a live demonstration to the Gustavus community on Wednesday, April 16, from 4:00-5:30 pm in Beck Hall.  Refreshments will be provided.

The April 16 talk and demonstration will explore the place of writing in Chinese culture, from early wisdom of Confucius to the continued primacy of learning in Chinese culture today.  Mr. Liu will create several four-character banners, each inscribed with sayings to promote learning and wisdom.  These will be presented as a gift to Gustavus Adolphus College.
