Asian Art Museum turns 50 this year! You can see how this museum was started from this link.
The first time I visited the Asian Art Museum, it was in Golden Gate Park. Now it is located in the heart of the city, across from the San Francisco city hall. During this golden anniversary year the Asian Art Museum has planned many celebration events. Golden Gala is one of the events and I was honored to be invited to participate in. I was asked to donate one of my bojagi work to an auction to benefit the museum's Education Department. I am happy that I can be a part of this good cause.
During the Golden Gala dinner, live performances like Bu Chae Choom (Korean Fan Dance), Chinese Bian Lian (Face-Changing mask dance), a Singer with Japanese Koto and Bhangra dance made the night more festive and fun.
Now I am at home and hope my bojagi's new owner's happiness.
Happy Lunar New Year! Wish you a happiness in the year of the Monkey!

Linda came from~ Bojagi
Indiana! Yes, she came to my class this week all the way from Indiana. She found me online and wanted to learn about bojagi. Luckily she has a plan to travel to the Bay Area. She came to my Tuesday morning class with her friend Cathy. Here's what Linda finished in my class! She even started her initials in Korean (ㄹㅇ!) at the corner of her first ever bojagi coaster. Thank you, Linda for coming! Next time when you visit the Bay Area, we will do Mosi ( Ramie) Jogakbo you liked a lot!
Thanks to 장혜홍 샘 for this wonderful jogakbo coaster kit!
