After the ribbon-cutting ceremony, a great number people one after another visited the exhibition until late at night. Visitors were not only surprised at the quality of the paintings, but also shocked by the contrast between the beauty of Falun Gong and the brutal persecution committed by the Chinese Communist Party. Guests earnestly viewed the paintings, read the introductions about the paintings and exchanged their opinions. One visitor said people cannot believe and accept such a cruel persecution is still occurring. A sixty nine year-old man shed tears in front of the painting, “A tragedy in China”.
