Painters, musicians, folk dance artists, architects and people from all walks of life participated. The primary purpose of this event was to promote business and cultural exchanges, as well as to create a bridge for China, the United States and African corporations to collaborate on myriad global initiatives governing financial investments, hunger relief, water conservation, energy alternatives, education, the arts, and music exchange, tourism, and exchanges in the fields of technology, health, and medicine.
Pampalone was cited for her outstanding contribution to society and her commitment to reaching across global cultural boundaries through her artistic interpretation of nature’s bounty. Luciana creates singular canvas compositions of colorful flowers, meticulously over-lain in 24 karat gold leaf, ascribing purposeful depth and shimmer, which has invoked a comparison to the work of Gustav Klimt. Pampalone remarks, “Every picture tells a story and every canvas I create is filled with emotion. Art is a universal form of expression and everyone can derive something from their own perspective. That’s why it’s so important for the arts to be supported. Our planet is in an uproar and sustainability is important to me. Photographing flowers is a way to preserve them while pouring my emotion into the work.”
