Ho Chi Minh City (VNA)
– A sculpture camp celebrating 40 years of Ho Chi Minh City’s development and integration was rounded off with a ceremony in District 9 on December 21.

Running from November 15 to December 17, the event gathered 50 sculptors, including 11 foreigners from Russia, Iran, Bulgaria and Japan, among others. These artists were selected for their outstanding submissions out of 200 draft works sent to the organising board prior to the camp.

All participating artworks reflect a growing dynamic city with friendly and active locals. They will be displayed at various public spaces across the city, such as along Nguyen Hue Street and Sai Gon River.

Three excellent awards came to Ket noi (Connection) by Do The Thinh, Doi ca (Fish’s life” by Ngo Liem, and Su nghien cuu triet hoc III (Philosophy III) by Fabian Saeren from Belgium.

According to Nguyen Thi Thu, Vice Chairwoman of the municipal People’s Committee, the camp provided an outdoor art creation space for domestic and international sculptors, contributing to helping sculpture flourish in the country’s southern hub and boosting local tourism.-VNA
