An international public art symposium ended on Wednesday in Chengdu, Southwest China's Sichuan Province after web meetings in line with strict COVID-19 protocols. 

Hosted by Xu Zhenglong from Tsinghua University, the symposium was planned by Shu Xingchuan from Southwest Jiaotong University with team members Liu Yang, Yang Shuai, Wang Xuhui, Yang Shuai and Tang Hongping. 

A total of 12 sculptures by 13 artists from five countries have been set up in Shouan Township in Chengdu. Artists included Olga Cuxart Oriol from Spain, Kuasi from Côte d'Ivoire, Mohammed Al Atiq from Qatar and Martin and Pavel Feat from Russia. 

Inspired by the symposium's theme The Way of Harmony, artists reused metal, wood and other industrial or daily waste materials to create public art that makes the "best use of useless things."
