SI-TUO ART ASSOCIATION (S.T.ART)
This Association, known as S.T.ART, was founded in 2005 with the idea of building are art society in western central Taiwan.
The founding members located the abandoned army camp which became one of the first projects.
There are many other art events and projects organized by S.T.ART in 2006 and to the present.
In 2006 and 2007, there was an Artist in Residence program based at the army camp. Five artists came each year by selection for one to two months. The artists volunteered their time, as do all others associated with the projects of S.T.ART. The idea is for all who are interested to give and share and to help each other.
Beginning in 2007, after the residency program, the program shifted to a balance of environment and art and the integration of the two.
While some founding artists moved on, many new people joined the evolving direction of the earth house and moon lectures and other work associated with the army camp.
The goal remains to invite more and more people to this vital and beautiful area and to enjoy work and art together.
