Da Nang (VNA) - A painting exhibition, the Meet of March, will feature 50 paintings by 10 local artists in celebration of the 42nd anniversary of central Da Nang city’s Liberation Day (March 29).

The event’s organising committee said the exhibition would officially open at the Da Nang Fine Arts Museum at 78 Le Duan street on March 28th.

The exhibition will focus on scenes of Da Nang – its mountains, river, beach and people – from past to present.

The Fine Arts Museum, the only one of its kind in the central and Central Highlands region, has a permanent display of 413 works by artists from the city and provinces in the region.

Also in celebration of Liberation Day, on March 29, the Da Nang Museum is launching a display of the culture, costume, wood sculpture, photos and lifestyle of the Co Tu ethnic group living in the central region.
The Co Tu people, Vietnam’s smallest ethnic minority, number some 70,000 people. They live in the Truong Son Mountain range in the provinces of Quang Nam and Thua Thien-Hue, and in Da Nang city.

The Da Nang Museum also preserves a collection of 11 ancient, cast-iron cannons (made during the Nguyen Dynasty, between 1802-1860) that were unearthed at the Dien Hai Citadel from 1979 to 2008.-VNA
