Korea 020.003 Box Red box, possibly a ham. From Nellie Im: "The red box was given to my mom by my dad's parents when my parents married. Wealthier families put lots of jewelry, and possibly money, or something of value. Per tradition, inside her box was jewelry and letters, including a detailed description of my father, meaning of his name, and his birth info. Since Koreans used the lunar calendar, the date and time of birth for example was very significant. Also the Chinese Zodiac is key to a good match. Koreans are still very superstitious, probably based on Buddhism or more Confucius teachings."

Korea 025.001 Mural Mural created by Kyung Lim Shin and Moon Hyang Lee. From Kyung Lim Shin's Artist Statement: "Han is complex concept evolved from Korean historical experience of frequent foreign invasion, social injustice, and inequalities suffered by women, common people. Han is unresolved sorrows and anger that manifest as a dull lingering ache both physically and psychologically. In this mural, Moon and I wanted to explore challenges Korean American face to fulfill American dream. Sense of displacement and inadequacy felt by 1st generation Korean American, heigthened by LA Riot experience. The pressure 1.5 generation must have felt to excel and success in new environment as they are forced to bridge parent to American culture when they are still young kids them-selves often. And identity crisis of 2nd generation; sense of alienation from both parent's culture and American culture; American born Asian American still often asked about a place of their origin. 'Where are you from?' Hip-Hop culture symbolized young generation, a marginalized subculture often with stigma to older generation or/and mainstream culture. This cultural phenomena demands us to confront a feeling of disconnection between culture and generation. It also symbolized confrontation to old by young by verbalization and exhibition of thought and emotion. In essence, it is not different than Madang Guk and Sa Mul No Ri. We have been catalyzed Han by getting ahead, dancing, and singing. And we wanted to find harmony within conflict."
Korea 025.002 Textile These bojagi floating in the air represent some of the common designs you might encounter in this traditional Korean art form. In the past, Korean women would utilize/recycle/reuse remnant fabric materials to make bojagi, often, creating random patterns from the scraps. There are also some recognizable traditional patterns in bojagi. Artist Kyung L. Shin created three different patterns: one with random patterns and two with common patterns with variations. In modern days, bojagi took the form of craft, and now there are many newly created works.

Korea 025.005 Mural This mural is the collaborative effort of Kyung Lim Hong, Hyang L. Kum, Moon Hyang Lee and Hey-June Park. Created specifically for the exhibition Explore Korea: A Visit to Grandfather's House, the work represents their artistic search for an enduring and vital Korean ethos. For the Korean-born artists, this search takes the form of a journey into the not-so-distant past, into experiences both personal and collective. But as memories are more often layered than linear, more impressionistic thank illustrative, so do the images of the mural overlap, repeat, and blend into one another. The result is a sweeping drapery of faces, landscapes, symbols and vignettes. The mural consists of mixed media, incorporating both traditional and new techniques. Look for images generated by age-old woodblock processes alongside modern brushwork and photographic transfers. Materials include rice paper and gauze, which are bound to the mural surface with wheat paste and arrowroot.
Korea 026.001 Scissors Scissors circa 1940, manufactured during the Japanese occupation of Korea. From Lea Armstrong: "My father owned a manufacturing plant when he bought this scissors. He used own a few companies such as making tops of Japanese wooden shoes (keta). Tops made with silk so that he used this scissors to cut the fabric. He used own a textile company as well and used this scissor to cut fabrics. I believe that my father bought this scissors in 1940 or so during Japanese occupation of Korea. My brother Tom Kim (Kyu Tai Kim is his Korean name) brought this scissors to Hawaii in 1968."
