(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioners in Chicago recently held a "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" Art Exhibition at the lobby of the Thompson Center, an Illinois State office building in downtown Chicago. The artworks in the exhibition, which depict the spirit of Falun Gong cultivators and expose the brutal persecution of Falun Gong in China, attracted many people.

Many visitors were moved to tears upon viewing the paintings, and wanted to do something for Falun Gong. People thanked practitioners for bringing Falun Gong to Chicago. Some people wanted to learn Falun Gong, and some bought Falun Gong books.

A magazine publisher was shocked by the brutality of the persecution. He said the artworks touched his heart and he wanted to do something to help Falun Gong. He said that he would like to introduce Falun Gong and tell people about the persecution on his website.

Two visitors, Timiro and Sarah, said that the persecution is not acceptable, and they would tell more people about it. They said that they learned a lot from the exhibition, and believed that exposing the torture to which the practitioners are subjected under persecution in China will help stop the persecution.

Many visitors expressed their support for Falun Gong, and praised practitioners for their efforts to clarify the truth and keep their belief.

Mr. Chen works at a law office. He said that he is willing to offer free legal consultation to practitioners. Wande from Poland cried while viewing the artworks. His family was persecuted by the communist party in Poland. He thanked the practitioners for telling him about the persecution.

An elderly Chinese couple from Guangxi Province visited the exhibition, and after seeing the artworks and talking with practitioners, they accepted the truth of Falun Gong. They both quit an organization affiliated with the Chinese Communist Party.

The exhibition ended on October 1, and will next be held in the Indiana State Capitol.
