From September to October 2015, Liu Haisu Art Museum launched the exhibition series of “Brilliance of a Century - Approaching to the Art of Contemporary Masters” in cooperation with art galleries in Beijing, Shenzhen, Nanjing and Yixing, exhibiting more than 160 pieces of fine paintings and calligraphy works of masters like Qi Baishi, Xu Beihong, Fu Baoshi, Lin Sanzhi, Guan Shanyue, etc. As a highlight of the “Culture 100” grand social benefiting events, the exhibition presented to the people of Changzhou a feast of culture.
