Ten Year Anniversary Celebration of the Summer in China Abroad Program

 

Thursday, May 19, 2011
Over the past 10 years, numerous individuals
have given their time, money, and wisdom to
fund and operate the Summer Art in China project.
We express immense gratitude for the people
responsible for advocating and contributing to
this life changing summer program. For these
efforts have enabled 107 students and faculty
of both the art program and academia to come
together and embrace China’s historic creativity
and culture. On behalf of all whom have benefited
from the previous 10 years of this program,
we thank everyone involved in the process.

6:00 to 9:00 P.M.

We celebrated the continued longevity of the program,
and presented certificates from Margaret Lam and
David Yen's Fellowship Ceremony for Summer Art in
China 2011.

"In 2011 we represent the 4th generation of students
to make this journey, with previous excursions having
happened in 2001, 2005, and 2008."
