HA NOI (VNS) — An ongoing exhibition at the Heritage Space in Dolphin Plaza in Ha Noi is showcasing hundreds of illustrations made for the folk tales published in the Heritage magazine.
The illustrations were created especially for the in-flight publication's Folk Tale column by several celebrated Vietnamese artists, including Vu Dinh Tuan, Tran Quang Minh, Nguyen Van Duc, Pham Hung Anh, Nguyen Van Cuong and Nguyen Truong Linh.
Launched in 1997, the Folk Tale column has introduced to its mostly foreign readership not only a rich collection of Viet Nam's folk tales but, through vivid illustrations, the evolution of the country's contemporary art scene.
The illustrations and other fine artworks will be auctioned on April 27 to raise funds for the construction of schools in poor mountainous areas.
The exhibition is open to the public till April 30 at 28, Tran Binh Road, Ha Noi. — VNS
