The Paths We Cross

Location: East Hawaii Cultural Center (141 Kalakaua Street)

The UH Hilo Humanities Division wishes to invite all students, faculty, and staff to the opening of a major art exhibition featuring two individuals from Korea--Mrs. Haekyung Seo, the Director of the Korea National Art Association, whose calligraphy includes topics related to the Big Island, and Mr. Byoung Yong Lee, a modern artist who spent the last decade of his life pursuing his passion in Hilo. Their works will be displayed along with the history of Korea and the impact of that history on Koreans and Korean-Americans on this Island. Local Korean-American performer Ms. Bonnie Kim will open the event with traditional drumming. Pupus will be served courtesy of the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs. The free event is made possible by major support from the Korea Foundation and the Hawaii Council for the Humanities.

Special Restrictions: Admission is free to the general public. Regular gallery hours are 10am-4pm, Tuesday through Saturday.
