58 Mariemont City Schools Art Students Participate in Sister Cities Exhibit

student art work

Mariemont City School District students from all four school buildings recently participated in a collaborative art exhibit in Liuzhou, China. This was the third time MCSD has been invited to be a part of a cooperative show with our Chinese sister city, as well as Bandung (Indonesia), Mantinlupa (Philippines) and Ami (Japan).
The Liuzhou Foreign Affairs Office invited students in Cincinnati to participate in the event to deepen the cultural exchange between Liuzhou and Cincinnati. This year’s theme was “Our Cuisine” and artists were encouraged to depict local food, ingredients, tableware and other aspects of the cooking process to promote food culture, deepen mutual understanding between Chinese and foreign teenagers and children and enhance the friendship between Liuzhou City and its international partners.
The Friendly Cities Painting Exhibition, which concluded in December, was a great success. The 2023 show was judged by an expert jury, with 170 winning works selected, followed by a three-day in-person exhibition in Liuzhou for the public to visit. According to Joe Hamrick, Chairman of the Cin-Liu Sister City Committee, Mariemont Schools are becoming quite well known in Liuzhou. It is an honor for the students of Mariemont to represent Cincinnati in this cooperative event.
