8 January 2013. The red portrait of Yan Pei-Ming is hanging in the entrance area of HSG’s sports hall. “Now, with this new work on loan, we are home to a treasure of contemporary art from Asia, along with many works of art from Europe,” said university President Thomas Bieger at the painting’s unveiling on Jan. 7th. Pei-Ming, who attended the event, said, “I am delighted that the painting is now a part of life on campus. In the sports hall, it accompanies young people during their daily study routines and gives them questions to take along – during what may be the best times of their lives.” Students who were working out in the facility watched the unpacking and hanging of the painting with curiosity. The painting is a loan of former HSG student Dr. Ralph Bartel.
Two more new works of art are on display at the Holzweid Executive Campus: Félix de la Concha’s 10-meter-long panorama oil painting, “Through the Looking Glass”, and Elisabeth Nembrini’s large animal projections, “Milky Way”, adorn the side walls of the Hans Ulrich Auditorium. Both works express international and regional solidarity – a motto of the University of St.Gallen.
