    About The Work

    Inspired by the outpouring of global support for the Students Rebuild Paper Cranes for Japan Challenge, celebrated visual artist Vik Muniz created a magnificent piece, titled "Large Paper Crane," with thousands of the cranes in his Brooklyn studio. Vik’s creation is beautifully captured in a New York Times' Sunday Magazine photo essay. This poster, based on Muniz' work, was created to raise funds for a Japanese youth center ravaged by the earthquake and tsunami. The character in "Large Paper Crane" means "together," and represents the thousands of people who came together to fold cranes and support Japan in the Students Rebuild Paper Cranes for Japan Challenge. Vik Muniz personally signed this poster at an event on March 30, 2016 at the New York Public Library.
