The Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Association will open a special exhibition featuring Vietnamese traditional dress Ao Dai next week. More than 50 designs from a collection of Ao Dai, called Wild Dream, made and painted by artist Hà Hùng Dũng, will be displayed.
Many photos and paintings of Ao Dai by Dũng and his colleague, female artist Trần Thiên Thanh, will also be included. “We hope visitors can learn more about Vietnamese women and their role through our art,” said Dũng, who has several years of experience in painting women and Ao Dai. The event will be raising funds to help 500 poor children living in mountainous areas in the north.
It will open every day from 9 AM to 6 PM from September 4 – September 10 at 218A Pasteur Street in District 3.
