Many Splendors of Taiwan Photo Exhibit in Houston

Those of you in Texas might want to check out this collection of Taiwan photos on display this month in Houston...( hat tip to lyho620)

Colorful photographs reflecting various aspects of Taiwan will be on display at Houston's Johnson Branch Library (3517 Reed Road) and Smith Branch Library (3624 Scott Street) from September 1~30, 2005.

As pictures are worth a thousand words, exhibit visitors will have a chance to experience Taiwan from afar. The vibrant images taken by Taiwan's photographers express the island's social development, scenic landscapes, wildlife conservation, festivals, arts and culture. The month-long exhibits will also include a special drawing contest named "How much do you know about Taiwan?" Twenty entries will be randomly drawn at each library at the end of the exhibit. Winners will receive a prize.

Sponsored by the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in Houston, the photographs are part of the collection entitled "The Many Splendors of Taiwan." The exhibit has been well received by viewers for the past three years across the southern US in cities such as Dallas, San Antonio and Austin.

Exhibitions may be viewed during normal library hours. For further information, please contact Joy Yen of the Press Division of TECO in Houston (Tel: 713-961-9465, email: or Marcia C. Chapman at the Johnson Branch Library (Tel: 832-393-2552) and Melissa Jarzis at the Smith Branch Library (Tel: 832-393-2053).
