(Clearwisdom.net) The "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" International Art Exhibit is being held simultaneously around the world. The exhibit displays the greatness of Falun Dafa and also exposes the ruthless persecution that has been going on in China. The Taiwan "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" Art Exhibition is sponsored by the Taiwan Falun Dafa Association. The exhibition has toured Taiwan and will now be held at the National Yunlin University of Science and Technology (NYUST) for 10 days starting on June 10. It has attracted numerous visitors. Even elementary school pupils enjoy the paintings so much that they don't want to leave.

On the morning of June 10, the sponsoring organizations conducted an opening ceremony and reception. Professor Ai Changrui from National Chung Cheng University was the host. A number of people in the art community and principals of some elementary schools also attended the reception, which included musical performances. Some elementary schools teachers brought all the students in their classes to visit the exhibition and to enjoy the choral and violin performances. Sponsors prepared many music CDs, VCDs, bookmarks, and paper lotus flowers, as well as materials exposing the CCP's persecution of Falun Gong, and gave them to visitors free of charge.

More than 40 art works are displayed in this exhibition. The exhibitors are artists from 15 countries, and are all Falun Gong practitioners. Among them, Mr. Zhang Kunlun and Ms. Pan Chuhong personally experienced persecution, including imprisonment and torture in China. The artists used their traditional painting skills to depict the beautiful situation of their cultivation experiences as well as the lofty uncompromising courage of cultivators when facing torture.

An elementary school pupil from Yunlin County said, "Good people can be distinguished from the bad ones. However, the CCP [Chinese Communist Party] considers bad people as good people, but treats good people as bad ones." Another student said, "After viewing the paintings, I feel really sorry for those people depicted. They are persecuted but their hearts are determined. They would not do any bad deeds. In addition, those practitioners' expressions show that they do not hate the police officers, but only want them not to continue persecuting those innocent people.

According to sponsors, this "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" Art Exhibit in Yunlin County will have three sessions. The first will be held from June 10 to 19 in NYUST, the second from June 24 to 26 at the Senior Citizen's Clubhouse in Beigang Town, and the third will be held from June 27 to July 1 in Welfare Building 2F of the Formosa Petrochemical Corporation at Mailiao, Yunlin County. Everyone is welcome to visit.
