Hangeul Festival: A New Way of Exploring Korea
April 24, 2016 @ 2:30 pm CDT/ Free
Online registration is now closed. Walks-ins are welcome.
Fun event for all ages! Both a living art and the Korean alphabet, Hangeul is a delicate dance between lines and spaces transformed to build designs that convey the profound range of human expression. Much more than just a written alphabet, Hangeul connects the horizons of poetry and visual art.
Unfold your senses in the movement of the brush and patterns of ink, and explore Korean art and culture in a completely new light. Join us for a unique hands-on Korean Hangeul calligraphy demonstration with master Korean calligraphist Byung-chul Park. A great event for the entire family, the afternoon includes a calligraphy workshop using special brushes on Hanji, Korean paper; the opportunity to create your own design with guidance from Park; and authentic Korean food.
Through his poetic art, Park illuminates how a traditional language can become contemporary art with global relevance. Recognized around the world, his work is featured at Gwanghwamun, the largest gate of Gyeongbokgung Palace in Seoul.
Presented in partnership with All That Story America.
