Korean Treasures in the U.S.

A quick reminder: Treasures from Korea, an exhibition so anticipated that it has its own trailer, opens March 2 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. After a three-month run, the show will head to L.A. in June and then on to Houston in November.


One hundred and fifty Joseon dynasty pieces including textiles, ceramics, lacquer, furniture, photographs, metalwork, screen painting and calligraphy have been chosen for the States' first major survey.
