Upcoming event in Starr

This Friday, September 25, 6:00-8:00 PM, we will have a special event in honor of the recent restoration of an important Korean painting in our collection, Cascading Waterfall in Mountains, by Ko Hui-dong.  The event will take place in our reading room, and will include a number of brief lectures in addition to the unveiling of the restored painting.  A small exhibition of books and other material about Ko Hui-dong is also on view.  To attend this event, please register at bit.ly/KoHui-dong.  We look forward to seeing you there.
