This exhibit features photographs from four Taiwanese artists who spent years documenting the natural and human wonders of mainland Taiwan and its smaller sister islands. In addition to the grandeur of Taiwan's mountains, coastlines and waterways, the photographers' work showcases Taiwan's people in their everyday environments as well as focusing on the vitality of Taiwan's performing arts.
"Because the arts are an invaluable tool for producing understanding and cultural awareness between people, the Oklahoma Arts Council is happy to be working with the Secretary of State's office to celebrate Oklahoma's unique ties to Taiwan Province," Oklahoma Arts Council Executive Director, Suzanne Tate said.
In addition to the 30-year Sister State relationship with Taiwan Province, the State of Oklahoma enjoys Sister State relationships with Kyoto Prefecture, Japan (25 years) and Gansu Province, China (25 years).
Sister state programs have proved to be effective in creating an atmosphere in which economic development and cultural and educationalexchanges can be implemented and strengthened.
