The exhibits were selected from various artworks by many painters, sculptors, officials and students from Hue Arts University, Thua Thien Hue Fine Arts Association and the Provincial Department of Culture and Sports.

In addition to traditional materials such as lacquer, oil paint, silk and acrylics, the works were also created using new and modern materials including nails and zinc films.

The exhibits reflected the temperament of the great leader as well as his noble human spirit ideals, aspiration for national independence and revolutionary life.

Through the exhibition, Thua Thien Hue’s artists wish to express their respect and gratitude to President Ho Chi Minh while inspiring the pride and determination to study and follow his thought, morality and lifestyle among Vietnamese people.
