Mi-Yeon Kwon on One Thousand Bowls Project

"I love involving my community into my art practice.  A perfect example of a project of mine which depicts my professional practice is a work in progress that I call, “The Thousand Bowl Project”.  I am on a mission to make a thousand bowls as part of my meditative process.  Through this project I am able to share the fruits of my creativity in different ways.  For example, I can greet new friends with bowls as presents and even donate bowls to organizations.  This can help bridge new relationships.  A simple bowl has been a very significant artifact in diverse cultures all over the world." 

Black lights! Fluorescent Colors! Space foods and drinks!!

The gallery will be decorated with space theme. There will be black lights to glow the whites. So dress up in your snowy white clothes and shine on!
