THE “FREEDOM” SHOW – Was very appropriately selected as the “NEW” name for their show by Japanese owner of Takeuchi Galleries, Derek Tadashi Takeuchi in honor of the Celebration of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage month. He stated more importantly, what this show really represents is a group of Proud Americans collaborating for the good of others. The title is actually from one of artist Cao Yong's most well known pieces of art titled FREEDOM, which was a dedication to all those who lost their lives in the attack upon America on September 11, 2001. He stated, “Freedom is not just a painting, it is something he poured all of his heart and soul into. It is about the spirit of liberty, about the dream of peace, about the universality of love, about the power of determination and last not but not least, about the hope for mankind. It serves to remind us that though evil may end human lives, it will never destroy the human soul. He also dedicated it to America and to all of the people throughout the world who love freedom, democracy and peace. These ideas are not limited by the boundaries of race, or faith, but unite all of us on earth and light the way of the future.” This painting since has been honored, celebrated, awarded and is known throughout the world. In fact, it was one of the four images that were featured in Times Square on the 4 NASDAQ Buildings in NYC for an entire week, not just once, but three separate times in 2013. Cao Yong is currently in China to oversee the building of the Cao Yong Museum, a museum when completed will host between 5,000 to 10,000 guests daily. It was such a great honor when Mr. Takeuchi and Mr. Barrett were told by Qing Yong, Cao Yong’s sister that Cao Yong had decided to travel from China to attend the event and join Tru Social Networking and Takeuchi Galleries as well as all of his many fans and collectors.
This show is in its second year and was created by a gentleman of English origin, Mr. Dan Barrett, an incredibly dynamic businessman with a true spirit of the American Entrepreneur. In the field of Business Social Networking for well over 25 years, almost instantly after meeting Mr. Takeuchi he intuitively said, yes, and quickly welcomed collaboration between the two. Mr. Barrett was very excited about the featured artist, Cao Yong a true modern day master who was originally from China but is now a proud American citizen and though he has traveled the world, he has selected California as his primary residence. Mr. Takeuchi and his Filipino partner, co-owner of Takeuchi Galleries, Gabe Pagtama quickly went to work creating a major publicity campaign for their upcoming event. A very important contact of both Cao Yong and Mr. Takeuchi was Mr. Arnold Garcia, who is also Filipino as well, the founder, owner and editor-in-chief of Shine On Hollywood Magazine which has been rated as one of the top three Hollywood magazines for the last year, informed Mr. Takeuchi, Qing Ying of Cao Yong, Inc. that he wanted to help advertise Cao Yong's show. What exciting news. This meant major and global exposure from the very beginning before they had even launched their publicity campaign. To better understand what this meant, if were to GOOGLE the generic term, “Hollywood Magazine” you will find about 437,000,000 (Million) results will come up and yes, they are always in the top 3, actually #1 for almost the entire last two weeks with a viewer ship of between 150,000 to 250,000 per day.
Since then, their international publicity campaign was tremendously successful with media outlets featuring their event globally. What better of an example of Americans Asians, Pacific Islanders, English collaborating together to a multi-ethnic audience of attendants and participants in both the Business Mixer and Art Show.
