No-Boundaries @ United Nations

 “No-Boundaries” International Youth Art Exhibition at the United Nations Headquarters on August 14th, 2016


“No-Boundaries” International Youth Arts Exhibition” at the United Nations Headquarters


On August 14th, 2016, the first annual “No-Boundaries” International Youth Art Exhibition for high school and university Students was held at the United Nations Headquarters. “No-Boundaries” collects outstanding artworks created by young artists from around the globe and  displays them at the UN Headquarters. Those who are interested in art are welcome to attend the exhibition for an enjoyable art experience. "No-Boundaries" aims to provide an international platform for young artists from around the world to get together, showcase their artworks, learn from each other, and develop their understanding of art.

The concept of “No Boundaries” is based on the belief that art has no boundaries, which aligned with the philosophy of the United Nations. "No Boundaries" International Art Exhibition collects artworks from artists of different nationalities, age groups and diverse backgrounds.

Through showing their artworks, young artists are presented with an opportunity to learn from and develop respect for each other's differences. Art can resonate with the spirit and is not restricted by race, nationality, culture or even physical condition. Young artists can learn by observing other styles of artworks created by their international peers and develop life-long friendships by sharing experiences developing mutual understanding through communication and support for one another. Famous artists will be invited to attend the event. They will also be invited to display their artworks and interact with the young artists. Officials of the United Nations will be invited to attend the opening and closing ceremonies.
