Terra Cotta Warriors: Guardians of China’s First Emperor will make its way this November 2009 to National Geographic headquarters in D.C. This exhibit features over 100 sets of objects, including the famed terra cotta figures, and tells the story of China\'s First Emperor, his struggle to unify China, and the wonders of his tomb complex. This exhibition is the largest set of terra cotta figures and significant artifacts to travel to the United States from China.
A sponsor could gain exposure at the tour’s final venue via exhibit attendance and related news media, as well as benefits across National Geographic’s program and media assets that can be utilized to meet various business objectives. The tour has exceeded expectations with successful runs at the British Museum in London (855,000 visitors in 6 months), the Bowers in Santa Ana, CA (approx. 215,000 plus 8,000 schoolchildren) and the High Museum in Atlanta (300,000 to date).
Given the momentum around this extraordinary tour, we feel corporate partners would benefit greatly from joining National Geographic for its final stop at our headquarters in Washington, DC.
