Hooray! We proudly saw the building of this two-day show came to a successful ending. Not only that we showcased great works from the eleven emerging artists, listened to two newly created poems about "fragile" from our beloved writers, enjoyed three live music performances, and participated in the live portrait drawing and collective collage drawing, we also got to meet and have conversations with so many friends, families, community members, and new audiences. A sense of appreciation was shown through the smile on the faces, the hugs and hand shaking, the thoughts sharing and listening; all these warmed our hearts during this challenging time and made us stronger to support each other.
