Praise for the USA Pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010

Nick Winslow organized the successful USAP

Judith Rubin, InPark contributing editor

Many thanks to BRC Imagination Arts for putting together this video showing how visitors are reacting to the USA Pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010, and putting the project into perspective. Nick Winslow pulled off an amazing feat bringing this pavilion to reality under very trying political and economic circumstances. Without Winslow and his team which included BRC (show producer), Clive Grout (architect), Norm Elder (sponsorship) and Winslow’s partner Ellen Eliasoph, plus significant lobbying for funds from the likes of Hillary Clinton, the US would probably not have been able to muster participation at the Shanghai world’s fair – the largest world expo in history and China’s “coming out party.”
