Zhengzhou, an ancient city of central plains and axis of Chinese civilization, is now the capital city of Henan Province. As a famous historic and cultural city, One Belt One Road node city and national transportation hub, Zhengzhou is also a metropolis representing the country image. Zhengzhou Sculpture Park, on the northwest of this city, which covered 288000 square meters, is cohering the ecological power and artistic connotation from contemporary central plains regional culture, and acting as Green Lung nowadays.

On July 24th, 2017, China Sculpture Institute and Zhengzhou Municipal People''''''''s Government signed “Human and Nature” China Zhengzhou International Sculpture Exhibition Strategic Cooperation Framework Agreement, intending to active central plains regional culture and realize harmonious coexistence between “Human and Nature”. Through two exhibitions, around 100 ecological featured sculptures will be installed in the park to present the contemporary value of central plains culture.

2018 Human and Nature ChinaZhengzhou International Sculpture Exhibition had its opening ceremony on September 29th, 2018, in which 47 sculptures were pronounced to be displayed permanently in the park. With the idea of harmonious coexistence between human and nature, these sculptures created a green outdoor gallery. It promoted the participation of art in urban development, and connected humanity space with environmental space successfully.

Zhengzhou Municipal People''''''''s Government will keep deepening cooperation with China Sculpture Institute on the great stage of international sculpture exhibition, and plan to select 50 pieces in the upcoming 2019 “Human and Nature” China Zhengzhou International Sculpture Exhibition to enrich the city’s artistic accumulation, turning the park into a visiting card manifesting the spiritual character of Zhengzhou City .

Zhengzhou, as a birthplace of China central plains culture and Chinese civilization, has a deep-rooted cultural background on its shoulders.
