(Clearwisdom.net) The 37th Korean Truth-Compassion-Tolerance International Art Exhibition was held in Gwangjin-gu Culture Museum in Seoul from June 11 to 15, 2007. The works displayed in the exhibition were the creation of a group of outstanding artists of different backgrounds. Through practicing Falun Dafa, these artists have obtained physical health and spiritual elevation. They have integrated their personal understandings and experiences into their artistic works using traditional painting techniques to express brightness, purity, and the supreme compassion that art should have. Through their art, the artists showcase their aspiration to achieve the wonderful realm of unity of Heaven and Man. Also through the medium of art, the artists have depicted the brutal persecution endured by Falun Gong practitioners in China over the past eight years, and manifested the noble and uncompromising spirit of these practitioners who believe in "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." The artists hope to help more people learn about Falun Gong so that they will become concerned about and help put an end to the persecution as soon as possible.

During the exhibition, a Romanian musical troupe performed Sahmyook University professors' musical works on the second floor. Most of the participants saw the exhibition. Through the art works and practitioners' explanations, they learned what Falun Gong is, how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) brutally persecutes Falun Gong, and the uncompromising spirit of practitioners facing the persecution. The Romanian troupe members expressed their concern over the trampling of Falun Gong practitioners' human rights and gained a better understanding of the evil nature of the CCP. On each day of the two days they came to view the art works.
Local residents of Gwangjin-gu actively signed the petition to support Falun Gong practitioners protesting the persecution. Many viewers expressed their support for the massive withdrawals from the CCP in China. A Chinese person wrote down "The CCP is bad" and signed the petition after seeing the paintings and accepting a copy of the "Nine Commentaries on Communist Party." Some viewers said that the CCP has a cruel nature and that eliminating it is the best course of action.
