Martial Spirit / 神武 - Led by artist Justin Hoover in collaboration with Kung Fu masters and artists, locally and globally, Martial Spirit transforms popular perceptions about martial arts practices through art and features a solo exhibition, community workshops at Ping Yuen public housing, archival documentation, and performances at Spring Festival. Martial Spirit is a part of "Building Our Town", a series of powerful art initiatives to build community.
