The Korean Cultural Center Washington, D.C. proudly presents To Be a Woman, a special group exhibition featuring a diversity of art works by 45 Korean American artists from the Han-Mee Artist Association of Greater Washington, D.C. (HMAA). Spanning richly traditional as well as cutting-edge contemporary art and craft, these 45 artists collectively express their experiences and emotions surrounding the driving inner spirit of women today.

Each artist explores current issues and challenges they confront and revisit in their lives, in particular as immigrant women in the United States, through an array of styles including East Asian traditional painting, contemporary visual art, calligraphy, metal craft, and sculpture. This special exhibition also commemorates International Women’s Day on March 8, designated by the United Nations.

HMAA is comprised of Korean-American artists who immigrated to the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area at various times over the last half century. In 1975, 15 such artists living in the Capital region founded the organization to support artists of Korean heritage with exhibition opportunities and encouragement to pursue their mutual passion for art. 

Admission to the exhibition opening reception featuring talks by the artists on March, 8 at 6:00 p.m. is free and open to the public, but registration is required (below). To Be a Woman will remain on view during regular hours through March 25, 2019.
