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.
