DIRECTOR: KIM, BONG HWA

My parents always taught me the importance of the tradition of Korean culture. From them, I learned to respect our tradition and practice throughout my life. Scent of tea, elegance of porcelain, patched fabric, nature on the paper, beauty of flower, and peaceful musicíŽ all of these became the part of me. Being far away from homeland made me more appreciate the beauty of tradition of Korea.

Nowadays, I am especially focusing on Jogakbo (Korean patched cloth) and imaginary folk-painting. With help from few supporters and companions, such as Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, California Traditional Music Association, Los Angeles Craft and Folk Art Museum, Alliance of California Traditional Art, and Korean Cultural Center, I have received awards, grants, and opportunities to have exhibition. I hope Casa Muhyang to be the place where all the different traditional cultures interact.
