Vietnamese artists win top honours at anniversary

At the ceremony held at Ha Noi’s Youth Cultural House, the first-class Labour Order was awarded to five artists and the third-class Labour Order was handed to seven others.

The association also gave 113 of its members medals for the cause of Viet Nam’s Fine Arts 2002.

The ceremony was attended by the Director of the Party Central Committee’s Ideology and Culture Commission and Politburo member, Nguyen Khoa Diem, the association’s General Secretary, Tran Khanh Chuong, officials from the Ministry of Culture and Information and Viet Nam Federation of Arts and Culture Associations, and painters and sculptors of different generations.

Association general secretary and painter Tran Khanh Chuong, reviewed the development of the Viet Nam Fine Arts Association over the past 45 years. From just 108 members at its foundation, there are now 1,366.

Along with hundreds of exhibitions, nearly 1,000 art works from hundreds of artists have been awarded at national and international art competitions.

Over the past 45 years, 18 painters and sculptors have been awarded the Ho Chi Minh Prize, which is the nation’s highest honour and is given to who have made a great contribution to the country’s fine arts.

The Viet Nam Fine Arts Association itself has also received a variety of high-class orders, including the first-class Labour Order (1960), the first-class Independence Order (1987) and the Ho Chi Minh Order (1997).
