California: Truth-Compassion-Forbearance Art Exhibition at Stanford University (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) Palo Alto, CA--The International Truth-Compassion-Forbearance Art Exhibition was held at the Tresidder Student Union at Stanford University for first two weekends in May. Many came to see the paintings.
Over 30 paintings by Falun Gong practitioners were on display. Many of the visitors were local residents, others were students and tourists. Some of the Chinese visitors, after seeing the paintings, declared their withdrawals from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations.
James came with his wife and daughter. His wife thought the people in the paintings were very lifelike, "See the little girl's expression, her tears are so touching."
James was attracted to the painting about a girl who lost her parents in the persecution because the girl was almost the same age as his daughter. "The paintings are classic," he said He did not know much about Falun Gong and the severity of the persecution until now.
Gis was surprised to see such brutality in the 21st century. "I am in shock. The Chinese Communist Party is slaughtering Falun Gong practitioners!"
Louise is a teacher. The moment she walked into the exhibition, she told the staff that she knew about the persecution in China, "Thanks for letting people know the facts." After seeing the paintings, she said, "This is just like how Jesus was tortured on the cross. The CCP persecutes a righteous belief. Please do not worry, evil cannot prevail over good."
One message in the guest book said, "The exhibition allows me to feel how brutal the persecution is in a close distance. I pray for those who are persecuted. This brutal suppression must stop."
