Zhangzhou is a major city, full of history and built along the original “Sea” Silk Road in China. As a crossroads of international travel, it is now playing host to an exhibition that celebrates what the Tao Te Ching refers to as "Tian Xia Shi," an expression signifying the mind’s capacity to understand all perspectives that exist in the world of art.  

 Countries represented in the exhibit, including the United States, are: India, Russia, China, Brazil, and South Africa.
