(Minghui.org) The Art of Zhen Shan Ren International Exhibition was held at the University of British Columbia on February 13-17, 2017. Many students, teachers, and staff attended, as did members of the public. Touched by what they saw, many signed a petition opposing the Chinese Communist Party's persecution of Falun Gong.
Ray Taheri, a senior lecturer at the university, viewed the paintings carefully and said that he thought that they should win prizes. He wrote in the guestbook, “All are solemn works. Impressive and unforgettable!”
Among the visitors were students, visitors, and local residents of Chinese descent. They came to ask for information and materials about Falun Gong.
A lady visiting her daughter in Vancouver said that she especially came to get information about Falun Gong. She said, “The Chinese Communist Party is an evil organization. The Party persecutes Falun Gong, while covering up the brutality of the persecution and spreading lies to mislead the public.”
Her husband, who is an artist, was persecuted by the Party in the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989. She thought that the paintings were very good. She especially came to the exhibition to talk with practitioners to get more information and express her support.
