Opening Ceremony at the Museum
Opening ceremony at the Sculpture Park Museum, the artists were introduced and dignitaries gave speeches and Rodin’s sculpture the “Thinker” was unveiled for the first time, a recent purchase from the Rodin Foundation by the city of Changchun. The event was well attended and very well done, after all the pomp, guests ate at a buffet style dinner. Then photographs were taken and we all had a great time. You notice I wore the tie. The young lady I’m standing with in front of the “Thinker” is Chun Hua my interpreter. Even though she was working I believe the evening was quite a special event for her. The other image is a group shot of just a few fellow artists, a good time had by all.
