Visit Elena Li’s “The Art of Living Together” Exhibit, March 2022

February 25, 2022

After a productive year in Mount Auburn’s cohort of Artists-in-Residence, Zhonghe (Elena) Li is exhibiting work from her project, “The Art of Living Together,” at the Watertown Free Public Library in March 2022. Supported with a grant from the Watertown Cultural Council, “The Art of Living Together” will include Chinese papercuts and watercolors to show the delicate balance between people and nature and interconnectedness of all beings, inspired by Li’s observation of wildlife, plants and trees, and her reflection on life and death over Mount Auburn’s 175-acre landscape.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Watertown Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
