A group of Shanghai artists visited Yan'an in Shaanxi province last September to experience the unique landscape of northwestern China and learn about the early history of the Communist Party of China.

Later in December, Yan'an artists traveled to Shanghai and visited historical CPC sites. The Shanghai International Cultural Exchange Association, which initiated the exchange visits, then put together the artworks created from these tours in the exhibition From Shikumen to Pagoda Hill that began on June 3 and will run until July 18.

A total of 105 artworks, including oil paintings, prints, water-ink art, and photos, by 88 artists was selected for the showcase.

He Dongmei, head of publicity from Yan'an city, says the first national congress of the CPC was held in a shikumen building, or stone gate houses, in Shanghai.

"Shanghai is the birthplace of the Party, and where the pioneering revolutionists pledged to devote their lives to the nation," she says. "Yan'an was the most important center and base of Chinese revolution where the Party grew strong and went on to influence the whole country.
