The "Silk Road steps to eco-culture" was a program initiated by China Eco-Culture Association to carry forward eco-culture and spread the essence of Chinese culture from May 2011 to December 2012.

The exhibition is themed on the idea of the "Borderless", and is expected to highlight that there are no border in the pursuit of art and art creation. Thus it intends to give visitors a better understanding of Chinese as well as foreign art.

"This exhibition not only serves as a platform of artists to exchange ideas, but also leads to a fusion between different art forms, cultures, and even between minds of artists and visitors," said Lin Yifeng, planner of the exhibition.

The exhibition runs until August 15, 2017.
