|Seoul Arts Center|The Great Artists

I kicked myself for not getting out to the Seoul Arts Center a couple weeks back when they had a beautiful art exhibit for Yayoi Kusama’s A Dream I Dreamed . I was actually worried that the exhibit would be too busy and it was going to be hard to find the Centerin  the summer heat. I found out this weekend its really not that hard to find it.

I really REALLY wanted to see A Dream I Dreamed but I didn’t go and I’ve felt like I missed a great opportunity ever since.  Lesson learned: Just Go, Dummy!!

They have some really amazing exhibits still ongoing. Check out the pictures for a few of their offerings.

They also have modern Korean art  and Edvard Munch. Looks very promising. It was unbelievably busy. sam_0810

The Great Artists exhibit is spectacular. There were so many household named artists that I was thanking my lucky stars again for getting to live in Seoul and having the opportunity to see the show. There are works by Monet, Rodin, Picasso, Dali, Warhol, etc… there were also lesser known artists that I (not being an art collector/expert) was able to learn about. There are beautiful, small works of art and magnificent, room sized works of art. Everything is set out nicely for the crowds and it is easy to get around. There are five rooms of art: impressionists, surrealists, pop art, modern and contemporary.  The exhibit is highly recommended.
