Yuan Yunsheng at Tufts University Art Gallery

  • Tufts University Art Gallery, Aidekman Arts Center 40 Talbot Avenue Medford, MA, 02155 United States (map)

In 1983, Tufts commissioned artist Yuan Yunsheng to create a 72-foot mural for the former Wessel Library. Two Ancient Chinese Tales—Blue + Red + Yellow = White?, which combines Chinese history and mythology,was painted as a single, continuous composition across six canvases.

Thirty-four years after its completion, the Tufts University Art Gallery is reuniting all six canvases of this monumental work in an exhibition honoring the mural, the artist, and those who brought this project to life.
