The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. (KCCDC) proudly announces Korean Art in the U.S., a new series of virtual tours of major exhibitions and collections of Korean art in the United States, launching with a curator-led inside look at Gold Needles: Embroidery Arts from Korea, now on view at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
During a time of limited travel and in-person programs, this new online program will provide the general public with a new level of access the richness and diversity of Korean traditional and contemporary art found in American museums including rarely seen collections not currently on display.
Guided by Dr. Sooa Im McCormick, Curator of Korean Art at the Cleveland Museum of Art, the first program highlights exquisite works from their current special exhibition of Korean embroidery, as well as a look into the museum's substantial permanent collection of Korean art. The collection boasts a robust selection of Korean works across a variety of media, which the museum has been actively acquiring by gift and purchase since 1915, leading to the establishment of the museum's Korean Art section in 2013 with support from the Korea Foundation and a range of Korea-themed exhibitions since.

The inaugural video will release for public viewing on Monday, November 2 at 6:00 p.m. on the KCCDC YouTube (@Koreaculturedc) and IGTV (@Koreaculturedc)
