Thanks to all who have helped so far, we are at $14,196 of our $48,888 fundraising goal!


$14,196.37 from 11/20/2017


$48,888 is the crucial minimum budget needed in order to raise Shengjing Panorama out of its wooden crate and into 360-degrees. We aim to raise this amount by the end of January 2018 to allow The Velaslavasay Panorama to re-open in a timely and rent-efficient fashion.


You can join our efforts by donating here.


Any amount helps us get closer to preserving and creating history! All contributions will be acknowledged as part of the exhibition’s debut and future programming.




Many thankful thanks for your invaluable attention,
The Velaslavasay Panorama
