Bridging Cultures: Photography Exhibition of the Classical Gardens in Suzhou, China

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Friendship city relationship between San Antonio and Suzhou, China, the two cities partnered to present an outdoor photo exhibition on the grounds of Mission San Jose. The exhibit was unveiled as part of the 2020 World Heritage Festival in September and remained on display through March 2021.

The exhibit honored the flourishing connections enjoyed by the citizens of the two cities. The Classical Gardens in Suzhou are, like the San Antonio Missions, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The exhibit was presented by the City of San Antonio, San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, San Antonio Museum of Art and the Municipality of Suzhou.
