Bringing out Natural Beauty Through Art: Stray Birds 197 – Pioneering East Rift Valley Granary Festivities

The Soil and Water Conservation Bureau, Taitung Branch planned the Pioneering East Rift Valley Granary Festivities, inviting environment artists from Finland, Japan, Turkey and Taiwan to take part. In accordance to the natural terrain and local culture, the artists created installation art to expose the public to the natural beauty and culture along County Road 197 in Chishang Township (Wanan Village), Zhengxing Village, Dian-Guang Neighborhood (Guanshan Township) etc. The organizers based the project on the Indian poet, Rabindranath Tagore’s Stray Birds. Every piece of the installation art represents every line of the poem, and embodies its profound meaning. Come to Chishang this summer to experience the conceptual artistic narrative for yourself!
