Shanghai at the Asian Art Museum
In October 2009, the production model of Spark changed, moving from a stand alone series of original programs to the production of Spark segments, which will be premiered throughout the year as part of the newly re-vamped This Week in Northern California.
Shanghai at San Francisco's Asian Art Museum is the first large-scale exhibition to feature the cultural productions of the city of Shanghai. Using a wide range of visual artifacts, the exhibition traces the impact that globalization has had on molding the city's dynamic, international character. Spark gets a guided tour of this unprecedented exhibit.
This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
Visit the Asian Art Museum for their opening gala in 2003 and then again in 2010 for their unprecedented Shanghai exhibit.
