The Century Mountain Project  - The Chinese poet and calligrapher Huang Xiang and American artist William Rock create  a "visual dialogue across humanity."

The Century Mountain Project is an East / West collaboration of art between the Chinese poet Huang Xiang and American artist William Rock.
Their collaborative art honors the greatness in us as human beings that has made itself evident throughout the centuries in the form of outstanding creators, thinkers, discoverers, leaders  -- essentially people who stood out like mountains throughout the centuries.

The ongoing collaborative artwork between Huang Xiang and William Rock  is a celebration of the vast potential in each one of us.  It has no cultural, gender or race distinctions.
After a subject is discussed and selected, William Rock will paint it and Huang Xiang will add his poetry and calligraphy.  They share an inherent trust of spirit which allows them to create art that unites, connects and celebrates humanity.

Mozart, Van Gogh, Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Emily Dickinson, you and I are connected.  Let's all climb Century Mountain.
