On April 13, 2005, the "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" Art Exhibition was held for the first time in Sacramento, the capital of California.
|The art exhibition attracted many staff members from the State Capitol, as well as tourists visiting the Capitol.|
The exhibition comprised of eight artworks including "Buddha Image," "Cultivation," "Smoke and Ash," and "Golden Lotus", all of which were created by Falun Gong practitioners. The paintings could be said to express Falun Gong practitioners' uncompromising courage in upholding their belief in "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance." They served to expose the Chinese Communist regime's brutal persecution of Falun Gong, and showed practitioners' endeavours to stop the persecution.
The exhibition was held outside the State Capitol and attracted many staff members as well as tourists visiting the Capitol. Moved by the artworks, a lot of people took the initiative to talk with practitioners and to ask for additional information.
The following are accounts of people's reactions to the exhibition:
One visitor used his cell phone to take pictures of several of the paintings.
A writer expressed his deep concern with China's current issues. After he was given a copy of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, he said that he would definitely read the articles through.
After learning the truth about Falun Dafa, a Chinese person who works in the State Capitol said that it is a shame for the Chinese Communist Party to persecute Falun Gong.
One woman took an extra copy of each kind of informational material, saying that she was taking them for her neighbour.
A Christian couple initially had some misunderstanding towards Falun Dafa, but after they learned the facts, they sincerely said, "We wish you success!"
An elderly woman who practised Yoga saw the art exhibition from afar and felt the strong energy field. She kept saying, "Excellent, excellent!" She especially came over and asked for leaflets and asked to learn the exercises.
A young man came over twice to view the paintings. The second time he came, he brought his friends.
The art exhibition was shown in the Capital of California for the first time. In the near future, more works by practitioners will be displayed, and more people will learn about the beauty of Falun Dafa and the brutal persecution in China.
