Thank you to all the 120 artists from 47 different countries who sent in a proposal for the 2011 Cheng Long art project.Â It was difficult to select just 5 from so many good proposals.Â Here is the list of the artists selected to participate in the 2011 project â€œChildren and Artists Dream of Greener Wetlands:â€
Rumen Dimitrov â€“ Bulgaria
Firman Djamil â€“ Indonesia
Karen Macher Nesta â€“ Peru
Julie Chou â€“ Taiwan
Hsin-yu Huang â€“ Taiwan
These artists will come to Cheng Long village for the installation period, April 8 â€“ May 2, to create their site-specific environmental sculpture installations; the opening weekend for the exhibition is set for April 30 and May 1.Â You can follow the artistsâ€™ progress on this Blog.Â I will be posting more about each artist and what they are planning to create in Cheng Long.
I look forward to meeting all of the selected artists and welcoming them to Cheng Long, Taiwan.Â Thanks again to all of those who entered, and we hope you will consider sending another proposal next year when we have a different theme and need different artists.
