Coming Soon

The Year of South Korea

December 29, 2017 – January 20, 2018

Invitational International Exhibition; Dukchun Lee Byoungkwon
Meet the Beauty of Korean Pottery in River Falls

Opening reception: Friday, December 29, from 4-6pm.

In 2013, UW-River Falls initiated the "Year of" program as a way to increase global education and engagement for both UWRF students and the greater community. The "Year of" program has allowed faculty, students, and community participants to break down stereotypes and connect across cultures, and 2017-2018 is the Year of South Korea. The River Falls Public Library Gallery is happy to collaborate with the UWRF as well as Korean ceramic artist Dukchun Lee Byoungkwon this winter. Please join us in celebrating the Year of South Korea and meet the beauty of Korean pottery in the River Falls Public Library Gallery through January 20, 2018. Please join us for the opening of the exhibit (and meet the artist) at a special reception on Friday, December 29, from 4-6pm.
