Founded in September 2014, the Crossing the Pacific-China Art Festival has been held for six consecutive years in San Francisco, Las Vegas, Portland and Seattle. This Festival,transcending geological and cultural differences between China and the US, creates a platform for the two civilizations to engage in dialogue and exchanges to facilitate mutual learning and understanding between the two countries. It plays an important role in promoting people-to-people exchanges between China and the US and enhancing the understanding and friendship between the the two peoples.
Since the establishment of this Festival in 2014, the Chinese Consulate General in San Francisco has cooperated with American cultural groups and organizations to present shows and exhibitions of Chinese culture and art to the American people and shared with the American audiences the aesthetic pleasure and mental enjoyment brought by art.
Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the 7th Cross the Pacific--China Art Festival has been postponed until late October ,2021 and will be held virtually on line.
