Art is the catcher of the soul. Good art has a high spiritual value and can promote the communication and harmony between people, people, nature and society. Ten years ago, the blue harbor of SOLANA started the exploration and inheritance of urban space art, connecting pieces of art with high aesthetic value to the commercial space, and integrating culture and art into the public life through the festival of lights. While illuminating the entire blue harbor, it also gives the city of Beijing super imagination and happiness.
