Thesis Updates: Goals

Instead of focusing on the visual analysis of guqin collections at museums, my thesis values the programs, events, and exhibitions provided by museums with key guqin collections, such as the Sackler Gallery and Metropolitan Museum of Art. Through these activities, museum professionals in the United States have identified some magic effects of this ancient Chinese musical instrument, including presenting and interpreting Chinese culture efficiently and lively to the public;  interdisciplinary, intercultural collaborating, bringing life back to the collections in museums as well as engaging the Chinese community.

Mr. Moore, the curator of the Musical Instrument Department has confirmed  the magic effects of using guqin for their fund-raising events.
