A recent two-day charity art exhibition in Beijing demonstrates artworks by people with mental disorders or intellectual disabilities, including cerebral palsy, autism and schizophrenia.

The event was jointly held by Baidu Tieba, the online community integrated with the Baidu search engine, and the nonprofit World of Art Brut Culture to call more attention to these special groups.

The Beijing exhibition, a continuation of Baidu Tieba's earlier online campaign called "Discovering China's Van Gogh", drew wide public response and many active members of the online communities went to enjoy the show.
