UPCOMING HANJI EVENTS
Here are a couple of interesting events that involve Hanji in one form or another that are going to be on this month. So if you live in the United States or are going to be visiting you may be interested in checking them out.
MAKE YOUR WISH ON HANJI
Sunday Feb. 9th, 1 pm at Flushing Town Hall, New York
137-35 Northern Blvd, Flushing New York, 11354, USA
As part of the Asian New Year Celebrations you will have an opportunity to get Korean folk paintings drawn on hanji (Korean traditional mulberry paper). Write your wishes for the new year on hanji and create a one-of-a-kind art piece to take home. Cost: $10 (materials included)
This one looks like it'd be good for the children and adults alike.

The Muckenthaler Cultural Center, 1201 West Malvern Avenue, Fullerton, CA 92833, USA
Young Hoon Kim
Dong Hyun Chung
Soon Ok Ahn

These artists interpret this ancient art form in a variety of unexpected ways for the 21st Century.
Hanji is an ever evolving art form and if you were interested in new ideas then this exhibition would be great to see. It's on for quite a long time so would be good to visit if you were in the area.
