Recently, OLYMP'ARTS 2023 has specially planned the Delphi Holy Spring Collection Ceremony in Greece, aiming to trace the origin of the art competition founded in ancient Greece in 566 BC and connect it with today's OLYMP'ARTS. The holy spring from ancient Greece is passed on by a priestess to six children from six continents—dressed in six different colored garments, aligning with the concept of the OLYMP'ARTS logo. They then head towards their respective continents, merging into the four oceans. Through the connection of water, it symbolizes and elevates the original intention of OLYMP'ARTS: "Arts connect the world."

At the same time, American director Derek Brown and his team have documented the entire process of the Holy Spring Collection Ceremony in a video format, including the collection of holy spring, its transmission, merging into the sea, and various other stages. Later on, more artists from around the world will join the filming project, showcasing their respective ongoing artistic creations and forming a documentary that truly embodies the spirit of OLYMP'ARTS. This documentary will be grandly premiered at the opening ceremony of OLYMP'ARTS 2023. From water connecting the world to arts connecting the world, this is not just a link in time and space but also a reflection and anticipation, tracing back and hoping forward, carrying more wonderful blessings for OLYMP'ARTS 2023.
Particularly noteworthy is the collaboration among Ms. Min Gao, the founder of Beijing Xingneng Foundation and an Olympic diving champion, Mr. ChangxinZhou, a painter and OLYMP'ARTS 2023 President of Chinese region, and Mr. MinqiFan, a master of Chinese ceramic art, who jointly created the vessel for the Holy Spring Collection Ceremony. MinGao, also an artist for the International Olympic Committee, expressed about this creation, "The Olympic Games have a history of nearly 3000 years, while the firing of pottery in Jingdezhen has a history of more than 1800 years. This is a convergence point of history." She also believes that the relationship between sports competitions and artistic creation is very close, representing a delicate fusion of health and beauty.
It is reported that the OLYMP'ARTS 2023 Opening Ceremony will also include the theme exhibition “RENEWAL: Journey through Time and Space,” where works by globally renowned artists such as hyperrealist painter JunLeng will be engaged, showcasing a marvelous array of various artistic genres. The theme forum will delve into discussions about the continuation and development of art, while also extensively exploring topics such as art combined with technology, bringing together diverse artistic viewpoints.
