Embracing the Ninth Very Fun Park
As we observe the opening of this year’s Very Fun Park, we can’t help but to look back at the fruits of our labor. The obstacles and challenges we faced throughout the past eight exhibitions were like that of having to climb a tree or dig deep into the soil, and peel away the hard outer rind of a fruit. Yet these difficulties have made the fruit sweeter and all the more precious. We are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to foster a warm and embracing attitude, capturing the spirit of the Very Fun Park by giving life new colors as we share art with you in this museum without walls.
Galatians 5:22-23 speaks of the fruit of the Spirit and it cites nine virtues, which very aptly represent every bit of these past nine years. The seeds we planted each year have not only budded, they have also born the sweetest of fruits. This led me to understand that we accomplish things for God rather than for ourselves, and thus all of our efforts are a part of His almighty plan.
Every year, Very Fun Park artists and creative minds come together to cook up a storm in the streets and corners of Taipei. The fusion of different artistic flavors, mingled with the summer heat and rain, creates an opportunity for cultural growth. With both private and corporate support, we have brought excitement and laughter to daily life in Taipei. Let the old and the new meet as we create new memories!
This year, we believe that you will not miss the works by artists from all over the world. With enthusiastic service from our volunteers, we hope that your journey through the nooks and crannies of Taipei will be one filled with wonder. Let the joyous pink of the Very Fun Park make your days warmer, and let us all embrace this celebration of art, culture, and life.
