Jin Shangyi, a well-established artist and honorary chairman of the China Artists Association, says the landmark exhibition shows the National Art Museum of China's devotion to enriching people's cultural life by diversifying and utilizing its immense collection of art.

Making full use of its collection for public viewing and education and to tell China's stories well has been essential to the mission of the National Art Museum and its administrators.

Wu, a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, also prioritizes this mission on his agenda when attending CPPCC's annual session.

He says the museum has been rotating, real and virtual, collected works by ancient artists and modern masters at exhibitions, not only to show the general public the country's cultural accumulations but also to inspire the creation of "new peaks rising from a highland" of art.

He proposed at this year's session that the museum will continue to enrich its public education programs by inviting noted scholars and artists to give lectures, and arrange workshops at which artists sculpt statues for heroes.

Exchanging with and showing the collections of international museums is also important to introduce the home audience to world art, he says, and meanwhile, to make the voice of China heard, and present a true, multidimensional and panoramic view of China to the world.
