V.P.E.S. Membership & Shengjing Panorama Donation
We entreat friends and admirers of the Velaslavasay Panorama to join us in welcoming《盛京全景图》Shengjing Panorama, a traveler by East winds.
Painted by masters 李武 Li Wu, 晏阳 Yan Yang, and 周福先 Zhou Fuxian of the Luxun Academy of Fine Arts, Shengjing Panorama depicts the city of Shenyang, China from 1910 to 1930—a point of great technological change, global exchange, and diversity in architecture, religions, and culture.
Our goal is to raise $48,888 by January 31, 2018.
By giving to the Shengjing Panorama fund, you will have a role in the creation the first ever China-USA collaborative panorama since the art form emerged in the late 18th century.
Your membership and contribution will allow the VP to:
- construct infrastructure to house the new painting
- sculpt and detail faux terrain
- design an immersive sound journey of oral histories, myths, and field recordings
- translate written materials into Chinese and Spanish to make our exhibit as accessible as possible
- produce cinematic and interactive interpretive media
- keep the lights on during the transition!
All donors will be acknowledged in the exhibition's debut.
