Event Details


Unfortunately this event has been cancelled.

Shanghai & Beyond will take us on a deep dive, back 7,000 years to the dawn of the Yangtze River delta’s civilization and geography. Who knew Shanghai history was so ancient? Learn about architectural highlights and ancient relics as we rediscover our “home away from home”. We’ll learn about the movers and the shakers who guided the rise of this city from its war-torn ashes, including the figure whose statue graces the Bund (hint – it’s not Chairman Mao). We’ll examine artifacts and handicrafts, both foreign and Chinese, from the Republic and Mao eras, along with fascinating political cartoons, illuminating a bygone era’s values and humor.
