During the exhibition "Encounter Guizhou Road", Urban Network Office and Drawing Shanghai organized two sketching events: Sketching Guizhou Road, and received about 40 sketching paintings by event participants as free donations so to make this exhibition possible.
We will sell most of the paintings and merchandise made from them for public welfare. The proceeds will be used for the renovation of aging facilities in Yunzhong Community to improve the convenience and safety for the elderly residents. We hope this exhibition will showcase that art can make a better community, based on which we hope a self-sustainable mutual-beneficial relationship could be built between community renewal and public arts. We want to expand the mission of 109 Guizhou road and make tangible contributions to the regeneration of this neighborhood.
