Yesterday marked an important milestone in the cultural exchange and interaction between BC and China. Poly Culture Group celebrated its official opening of its North American headquarters in Vancouver with the grand opening of the Poly Art Gallery at 905 W. Pender Street in Vancouver. The commemorative installation displayed is valued at over USD $60 million and includes four bronze-cast animal heads from China’s famed Old Summer Palace. The installation also included many jade artifacts displaying exquisite craftsmanship of the Qianlong Period. We are excited to see much more jade displayed at the Poly Art Gallery in the future.
The night ended with a performance by the China Philharmonic Orchestra at the UBC Chan Centre. This musical group has over 1,000 performances including at The Vatican in front of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. We were honored to be a sponsor of such a meaningful event and congratulate Poly Culture North America and HQ Vancouver for a successful evening.
