Changchun Bids to Host World Sculpture Conference
Changchun, capital of northeast China's Jilin Province, is bidding to host the 2003 World Sculpture Conference, hoping to bring itself to the world through art.
The biennial exhibition routinely held in the United States has been made 18 times and the 19th event of it will be held in the state of Pennsylvania.
Since 1997, Changchun has hosted its own international sculpture show once a year, with the theme "Friendship, Peace and Spring." For each event, 150 artists from 50 countries and regions were invited to exhibit nearly 200 pieces of works. The fifth show is scheduled for this July.
The host city of a World Sculpture Conference is responsible for inviting 800 to 1,500 artists, designing the theme of the event, ensuring the smooth proceeding of the conference, and covering the expenses for 18 experts who will deliver special reports at the conference.
