Support Program for Korea Day Events at Museums Abroad

Support Program for Korea Day Events at Museums Abroad


◈ Korea Day Events
• The Korea Day program is designed to present one- day events that offer a diverse array of Korea- related activities, such as a special exhibition on Korean culture and arts, guided tours of the museum’s Korean gallery, talk sessions with relevant artists/specialists, art performances, and demonstrations of Korean arts/crafts, so that local visitors can enjoy firsthand experiences of the colorful aspects of Korean culture.

• The Korea Day (previously Korea Foundation Day) program was launched in 2011 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Korea Foundation’s establishment. The inaugural event was staged at the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2011, followed by similar events at such prestigious museums as the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Each of the events included the attendance of invited guests and local visitors who enjoyed the opportunity to learn about the culture and arts of Korea.
