Korean Cultural Celebration - opening show

A three-month-long celebration of Korean visual and performing arts kicks off on Oct. 12. The centerpiece will be an exquisite collection of intricately hand-transcribed and illuminated sutras, Buddhist scriptures that have been copied character by character and illustrated with drawings in gold and silver paint, in a 1,700-year-old tradition known as Sagyeong. The celebration will include musical performances, workshops on Sutra-making and Zen Meditation, a panel discussion on Korean traditional music and a live demonstration of Sagyeong by a master artist. Suggested admission: $5/free for members and students. Gallery hours: Wed. - Sun., noon - 5 pm. Runs to Dec. 30.
