Mr. Lee Sun-Dun, Art Director of Art Revolution Taipei 2011, thinks differently about approaching the art fair experience. To integrate humanitarian and public welfare, this art fair reveals a more charity driven, warmer side than just the usual commercial interests. The special program--Art Your Compassion from Art Revolution Taipei 2011 will be held on May 12, which hosts two events. One is “Hundreds Of Celebrities”, for which each participating celebrity will create an artwork about the size 17.5 x 14 cm and priced at US$30. Each collector is allowed to collect two artworks at most. Hundreds of renowned people are invited to take part. Among them, the former President Lee Ten-Hui, Taichung Mayor Jason Hu, Professors Chai Song-Lin and Kao Xi-Juan are pleased to draw their own painting for the charity sale. The other event is “The Compassionate Rich’s Charity Sale,” which invites locally well-known figures keen for public welfare to participate and each donates 1 to 3 pieces of artworks of his/her own creation. Proceeds from the sale of these artworks will go directly to the Good Shepherd Social Welfare Services.

The Good Shepherd Foundation is run by good shepherd sisters, devoted to eliminating abuses, abandonments or trafficking among children, teenagers and women, as well as offering placement, refuge and remedial education. Due to lack of resources, servicing the society has never been easy; but nevertheless the foundation sticks on their quiet contribution against all odds. They need support from everybody.
