Salvador Salort-Pons to discuss about the possibility of future collaborations between DIA and its counterparts in China. 
Detroit is not only known as "Motor City", but also the home of Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA). Salvador Salort-Pons, director and president of DIA, expressed his eagerness to strengthen cultural exchange ties with Chinese counterparts. He told Hong Lei, Chinese consul general in Chicago, that he hoped DIA would have a hall exhibiting Chinese art in the future. Hong said cultural exchange and economic cooperation could go hand in hand, pledging that he himself would help bridge DIA with related Chinese cultural counterparts. Salort-Pons guided the Chinese envoy and other guests to some of DIA's best collection, including Detroit Industry by Diego Rivera, and Wedding Dance by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, and a bronze ware Hu of China in the East Zhou Dynasty more than 2,000 years ago. DIA held a special exhibition of Chinese calligraphy and paintings to celebrate the Chinese New Year of the Rooster. (Zhang Yu'an/China Daily USA)
