On October 26, Bank of China Shanghai Branch and Shanghai Soong Ching Ling Foundation jointly held the 3rd Youth Public Welfare Painting Exhibition & Award Ceremony with the theme of “Hello, Future” on No. 23, the Bund，Shanghai.
The youth art exhibition initiated by Bank of China Shanghai Branch has been successfully held for three sessions, attracting and animating more and more children year by year. Nearly 2000 “young painters” from about 100 schools participated in this year’s public welfare painting exhibition. The entries range from traditional Chinese painting, printmaking, and watercolor to gouache and oil painting, while the age of these “young painters” varies from 5 to 16 years old.
Experts of the jury selected the works from multiple dimensions, including theme performance, aesthetic feeling of the composition, picture interest and creativity, etc. 360 works stood out as “excellent works”. Among them, nearly 100 works including the first, second and third prize ones were exhibited on No. 23, the Bund.
During the activity, 13 “young painters” sold their awarded paintings on the spot and donated all the proceeds to SSCLF’s “From the Mountains” Public Welfare Project. Hundreds of young painters also participated in on-site theme creation, using their brushes to depict their own “future world” with the theme of “Hello, Future”.
Mr. Jia Yong, SSCLF’s acting secretary general and Mrs. Fei Xiaoxian, general manager of Personal Banking Department of Bank of China Shanghai Branch awarded the prizes to the children and had a cordial exchange with them about the future.
