Argentina bestows artistic gift on Vietnam

In Uncategorized on June 9, 2010 at 7:38 pm

A lively and colorful mural depicting the cultural treasures of Argentina has been unveiled in Hanoi to welcome the capital city’s 1,000th anniversary celebrations.


Artists Maria Teresa Bobbio, Christina Diaz and Sonja Vitulic worked with Vietnamese artists for three weeks to complete the 25-meter ceramic mural.


Located along the embankment under the Long Bien Bridge Pier, the 65 ceramic tiles illustrate idyllic Argentinean landscapes as well as the country’s famous Tango dancers.


The ceramic tiles used in the mural came from Bat Trang, Vietnam’s most famous handicraft village where some of Vietnam’s most talented artisans ply their trade.


While the mural was under construction in Vietnam, Vietnamese artists also traveled to Rawson, the capital city of the southern province of Chubut, Argentina, where they made a mural for the city as a gift in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Argentina’s May Revolution (May 25, 1810).


The picture, titled “New Era” and located at the Rawson capital city center in the city’s administrative district, has historical and cultural themes, featuring images of Vietnam and Argentina including Vietnam’s peach blossoms and Khue Van Cac (Pavilion of Literature), Ceibo flowers of Argentina, the Rawson City Church and a battleship.

Handicapped children show their artistic creativity


QĐND – Sunday, March 14, 2010, 21:36 (GMT+7)

An art festival for children with disabilities was held in HCM City on March 14 by the municipal Vietnam-Japan Friendship Association and the Volunteers Group Coupii Vietnam, a community-based group with about 80 members established in 2008.


At the event, hearing-impaired and mentally-handicapped pupils from two schools in HCM City joined other disabled children from Binh Duong province in creating artwork.


This festival provided a chance for these disadvantaged children to integrate more fully into their communities and call for support from society.


Kim Ngan, a coordinator of Coupii Vietnam, said artistic activities like this, though simple, would help the children build on their creativity and show their own languages. She said they would have an opportunity to interact with the community and receive more attention from society.
