The highlight of the tour was the group exhibition with twenty contemporary Chinese artists at 188 Art and the opening ceremony on Tuesday, September 23rd in Shanghai. This visit is in conjunction with the Yellowstone Asia Initiative, which brought an exhibit of contemporary artists from China to their only US showing in Livingston, Montana. An “East meets West’ mural drawn by Parks Reece was also completed in Livingston this summer to commemorate the relationship.
