This poster of Vik Muniz's original piece "Large Paper Crane" measures 40" x 50" and is now for sale for $30 USD, which includes shipping and handling within the United States. The character on the poster means "together" and represents the thousands of people who came together to fold cranes and support Japan after the massive earthquake and tsunami. Design by Tony Morgan, Step Graphics.
Thanks to all those who answered the call to make a paper crane in support of Japan. Artist Vik Muniz created a magnificent, original piece of artwork -- now for sale as a benefit poster. Poster orders are limited to 25 per person and the posters will be carefully rolled into a tube and sent via United Parcel Service. Unfortunately, we are unable to mount or frame posters. All proceeds raised through the sale of the posters will benefit Architecture for Humanity's rebuilding efforts in Japan.
About the project
Paper Cranes for Japan, a campaign of Students Rebuild, challenged young people worldwide to make and mail in a paper crane following the devastating Sendai earthquake and tsunami. We received more than two million cranes, paired with wishes of hope and healing, from 38 countries and all 50 states and generated $500,000 in funding for reconstruction.
Inspired by the outpouring of support from across the globe, celebrated 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 the New York Times Sunday Magazine photo essay and for sale as a benefit poster to aid long term recovery and reconstruction.
