Made in Taiwan, Displayed at CELOP
CELOP students know that their Student Lounge may be transformed, on any day, into a venue for a party, karaoke, or the CELOP University Fair. But an art gallery? This was a first!
For a week in May, the CELOP Lounge displayed the work of four artists who grew up in Taiwan and are now studying in the United States. "Made in Taiwan" was organized by Grace Jung, who has just received her Master of Science Degree in Arts Administration from Boston University Metropolitan College. Grace explains that Taiwanese art is rarely shown in the US, and she wanted to explore how American art education might influence Taiwanese art students.
"Made in Taiwan" was sponsored by the Cultural Division of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Boston and Boston University's Center for the Study of Asia. It was CELOP's honor and pleasure to host an Opening Reception attended by the Director of the Taipei Cultural Division, Dr. Shan-nan Chang, and the Director of the Center for the Study of Asia, Dr. William Grimes.
