New @ NW: Republic of China Centennial Photo Exhibit

Yesterday, a few of the folks from the Taipei Cultural Center dropped by the library to install this beautiful photo exhibit celebrating Taiwan's (or the Republic of China's) centennial.  The exhibit is called Retracing Our Steps: A Photo Journey through 100 Years of the ROC.  It is meant to explore "the ROC's development over the past century, encouraging visitors to remember the past, cherish the present and look forward to the future," as well as to "illustrate the nation's transformation and the blossoming of diversity, creativity and tolerance in the hundred years since the founding of the ROC."

Retracing Our Steps will be on display throughout the library until the end of May.  Come on by and celebrate one hundred years of Taiwanese culture with us. (More pictures from the exhibit after the jump.)
