Art bonds China with Park City
November 13, 2018
Susan Swartz Studios, 260 Main St., hosted a delegation from the Chinese Embassy from Washington, D.C,, as well as Chinese dignitaries and notable Utah business and government leaders.
The gathering was built upon the success of Swartz's recent solo exhibition at The Central Academy of Fine Arts Museum (CAFA), one of the prestigious art institutions in China. Swartz's exhibition, "Personal Path" ran from Oct. 11 through Nov. 4 and was featured as a stop on the recent Utah World Trade Center Delegation's trade and cultural mission to China.
The Utah delegation joined Swartz at her exhibit at CAFA, in Beijing on Oct. 11.
During the event, Brad Herbert of Zions Bank read a proclamation from his father, Gov. Gary R. Herbert, that declared Oct. 11 as Utah-China Cultural Friendship Day.
As a symbol of the proclamation, the delegation bestowed a piece from Swartz's exhibit, "Evolving Visions," painted in 2016, to the CAFA, as a gift from Zion's bank and the State of Utah for the people of China. The delegation also gifted a piece of Swartz's artwork, "Shimmering Light" for permanent display at the U.S. Embassy in China, through the Art in Embassies program.
