The first sports art exhibition opened in the Winter Olympic village in Beijing on Monday, as a celebration for the upcoming 2022 Winter Olympic Games.

A total of 100 artworks created on the theme of Olympic culture, Olympic city culture and traditional Chinese culture are on display.

Yu Zaiqing, vice-president of the International Olympic Committee, and vice-president of the Beijing 2022 organizing committee, said it's very meaningful to hold the art exhibition in the Olympic village, as athletes are the center of Olympics, and they will live there. The exhibited paintings and calligraphy pieces from famed artists will help build a bridge between the West and East, China and the world.

Han Ziyong, president of Chinese National Academy of Arts, wrote a preface for the exhibition. He said sports and art have gone hand in hand since ancient times, as Chinese ancient poets such as Li Bai and Du Fu had poems portraying ancient sports in China.

The exhibition will run through March 13 until the closing of the Winter Paralympic Games, and after that, some artworks will be collected by Olympic museums home and abroad.
