WEST VALLEY CITY — The city will unveil the Chinese Heritage Gate at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center with a community celebration of Chinese tradition.
The unveiling will take place Saturday from 6-10 p.m. at 1355 W. 3100 South and is open to the public free of charge.
The gate, 10 years in the making, is a symbol of the sister city relationship between West Valley City and Nantou, Taiwan. It will be a prominent structure on the Cultural Center grounds, inviting visitors to admire its architectural beauty and reflect on Chinese culture.
In addition to the public celebration, two complementary exhibits have been installed at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center showcasing artwork from Taiwan. The Beauty of Nantou 2012 features contemporary fine art by more than 25 of Taiwan’s most famous and celebrated artists. And Why Taiwan Matters is an informational photography exhibit that traces the history of Taiwan.
In addition, gifted art and artifacts from Nantou will also be on display. The exhibits open on Saturday as part of the celebration, and will feature art demonstrations by visiting Taiwanese artists.
