City Hall exhibit this week tells story of Sun Yat-sen

A photo exhibit marking the life of Sun Yat-sen (1866-1925) continues through Friday, Jan. 14, at Bellevue City Hall. Sun is considered the founding father of the Republic of China (Taiwan).

Called "Retracing Our Steps," the 90-piece exhibit features compelling black-and-white and color photographs that tell the stories of Sun and of Taiwan. Works are located outside Room 1E-113 on the first floor, as well as on the second floor near the main entrance to City Hall.

The photo exhibit is part of a series of events that included a Saturday gathering of more than 300 people at City Hall with speakers, dancing and music. The ceremonies conclude Tuesday evening with speakers at a meeting of the Bellevue Sister City Association.

One of Bellevue’s Sister Cities is Hualein, Taiwan. The people and government of Hualein have provided Bellevue with several gifts over the years, including statues displayed on the plaza in front of City Hall.

Taiwan is also important as a technology powerhouse, and as a market for Washington state agricultural products such as cherries, applies, and wheat.
