3000 Years of Chinese Art & Culture, Five Exhibitions One Summer3000 Years of Chinese Art & Culture, Five Exhibitions One Summer

Concordia University Wisconsin is proud to be one of the corporate sponsors of The Summer of CHINA exhibitions at the Milwaukee Art Museum from June 11 to September 19 this summer. Five exhibitions will be on display at the Museum including the featured exhibit, The Emperor’s Private Paradise: Treasures from the Forbidden City.

The Summer of CHINA is a culmination of years of hard work by many people who believe that these exhibits will be a learning opportunity for people of all ages. Concordia University Wisconsin has sister schools in Xinjiang and Beijing, China.

“This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for people who will never get a chance to visit China to experience rare artworks that have never before left The Forbidden City in Beijing,” said Dr. Michael Besch, history professor and vice-president of academic operations at Concordia.

This ambitious series is part of a year-long celebration honoring the ten-year anniversary of the Museum’s Santiago Calatrava-designed Quadracci Pavilion and will include a broad range of CHINA-related programs throughout the summer.
