An exhibition featuring paintings depicting scenery along the Road of Tang Poetry, which refers to a route that crosses through much of eastern Zhejiang, opened at Taizhou Contemporary Art Museum on Jan 13.
The works displayed were selected from more than 500 submissions from across the nation. The solicitation for works themed on the Road of Tang Poetry was launched by the organizers, including the Zhejiang Provincial Department of Culture and Tourism and Zhejiang Federation of Literary and Art Circles, in July 2022.
The exhibition is scheduled to run until Feb 12.
Taizhou is known as an important stop on the Road of Tang Poetry, which was named as such because more than 400 poets in the Tang Dynasty (618-907), including Li Bai, Du Fu and Bai Juyi, wrote poems while traveling on it.
In 2019, Zhejiang designated five tourist attractions along the road, three of which are in Taizhou, as Scenic Spots along the Road of Tang Poetry. They are Tiantai Mountain, Ancient City of Taizhou Scenic Area and Shenxianju.
