Return from China

I apologize for my absence. I just returned from a two week trip to China where I traveled to Yan'an with BYU professor Eric Hyer to talk to local artists about their experience and work during the Cultural Revolution. It is one of our extracurricular activities here at Combat Films and Research to collect political, military and revolutionary related original pieces of art. We are in the midst of putting together an exhibit on a group of Chinese artists thrown together by Mao's policies in the 1960s and 1970s. I promise to post more on this in the near future, but in the meantime if anyone is interested, the collection will be shown at the Springville Art Museum in Springville Utah September 11th through October 16th.

The Springville Museum, under the direction of Vern Swanson maintains a large permanent collection of Soviet Socialist Realism art work. It is a natural to exhibit the Chinese collection here.
