Younhee Shin will present this hands-on workshop on the Lotus Lantern. Ms. Shin is the Program Coordinator for the Korean Spirit and Culture Promotion Project, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to raising awareness of Korean history and culture. While the headquarters of the KSCPP is in South Korea, there are branches in the Unites States as well as in Germany and the United Kingdom. The event will explore both the meaning and importance of the Lotus Flower in Korean culture and art. It will also serve as an introduction to attendees on Korean artistic tradition and the aesthetics of Korean art. The event will include not only a question and answer period, but also an opportunity for each attendee to create their own Lotus Flower Lantern as an embodiment and reminder of the topics introduced and explored during the event.
This project is made possible with funds from the Individual Artist Grant program of the Arts Council of Rockland and the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
