Minerva Gallery, created by Minerva (Yiqian) Zang, focuses on the international development of art and is devoted to establishing stronger connections between eastern and western art. With a complete operating system, Minerva Gallery is committed to promoting communications between domestic and foreign artists, as well as the interactions among art institutions. Through art exhibitions, academic exchanges, international programs, and public art education, the gallery desires to become an international cultural exchange platform in the context of globalization. In addition, Minerva Gallery will help minority groups to improve their living and learning environment through public education, children's art exhibition, and charity auction. We hope to use our gallery as a socio-cultural platform to spread more love and acceptance.
