Korean Liberation Day is celebrated annually on August 15 to commemorate the liberation in 1945 from Japan's 35 year rule. The Korean American Traditional Artists Association, KORUS House and the Embassy of the Republic of Korea are hosting an Art Exhibit to showcase nearly 50 selected works of art from the Third Nationwide Korean American Art Contest held in 2009. The art exhibition tour begins on Thursday, August 13 at KORUS House in Washington DC. It will then travel to the Jaisohn Center in Philadelphia from Sept. 8-15 and then to the Korean Education Center in Los Angeles from Oct. 1-15.
A great way to teach your child about Korea's history and celebrate Liberation day through art!
