Progress on the Artworks for 2016 Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project

The weather has been much better recently in Cheng Long village, Yunlin County, Taiwan, and we are all happy there is no more rain these days and a lot of the water is drying up.  The artists and volunteers have continued to work very hard to get the environmental artworks finished by the opening on April 29.  The public opening activities will be during the weekend of April 30 and May 1, and each international artist will have some sort of DIY (Do It Yourself) activity at their site in the wetlands to engage people and chat with visitors.  Watch this Blog and our Facebook page for more information and details about the opening weekend activities for the 2016 Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project.

The artists selected for the project this year are making works on the theme “Meet the Future in Cheng Long – The Next 30 Years”.   For this year’s art project we are happy to have Amar from Mongolia, Claudia from Argentina, Elena from Italy, living in Norway, Justin from Canada, living in Finland and Chris Lee from Taiwan.  This year for the first time a team of Cheng Long villagers is also creating an artwork.

Here are some photos of each artist’s work showing the progress they are making.  A big thank you to all the hard working artists and the volunteers.  Also, to the many volunteers and children in Cheng Long village who come out to help the artists.
