On The Passing of Wang-go Weng
China Institute honors the passing of legendary art-researcher, collector, and philanthropist Wang-go Weng.
Mr. Weng served as President of China Institute from 1982-1987 and was instrumental in expanding the organization’s presence and influence. He also founded the China Institute Blue Cloud Award, which is still awarded today to American and Chinese leaders exemplifying our mission. We recognize all that Mr. Weng contributed to the field of Chinese art and the important work he did on behalf of China Institute. Our thoughts are with his many family, friends and art-world associates during this difficult time.
