A New Era of Peace and a Peaceful Land @ CGR
Jul 12 – Oct 5 all-day

This exhibition, sponsored by Mennonite Central Committee and curated by the Korean Art Forum, collects rarely seen works by American, Chinese, North and South Korean artists. 

Responding to the speeches given by leaders of North and South Korea at an inter-Korean summit in 2018, this exhibition serves to communicate the following thesis: Peace is not an absence of war, but the living process of freely interacting with others and understanding their values and perspective, while realizing truth and justice.

Exhibit celebration: Thursday, September 20 at 4:00 PM in the Grebel Gallery. Registration coming soon.
