Sien Lok Society’s Builders & Patriots 2: A History of Calgary’s Chinatown Photo Exhibit has returned home from a month’s showing at the Alberta Legislature Building in Edmonton. BP2 was showcased in the Pedway Mall from May 1 through May 27, 2011, just in time for Asian Heritage Month. The exhibit was well received by visitors, and compliments of the exhibit’s professionalism were offered.

We would first like to extend special thanks to Teresa Woo-Paw, MLA Calgary Mackay for making this opportunity possible for the Sien Lok Society of Calgary, and for also profiling BP2 to the Alberta Legislative Assembly on Tuesday, May 10, 2011. Her statement is included at the end of this article. Next, we extend our heartfelt thanks to our Past President, Robert Jim, and his brother Rick Jim (of Edmonton) for volunteering their assistance in the travel and installation/dismantling arrangements. As well, we thank Rebecca McCance for the BP2 poster design.

Acknowledgment and thanks also go to Marissa Stepnisky, Marketing Coordinator, Visitor Services for working with us to ensure the overall success of the exhibition at the Alberta Legislature Building. AMJ Campbell was contracted to move and ship our BP2 exhibit to and from Edmonton, and CI Display of Edmonton was contracted to set up and dismantle it at the venue.
