The Honolulu Museum of Art will exhibit items from its collection of Korean ceramics from August 13 to November 8, 2015. The exhibition, titled “Splendor and Serenity: Korean Ceramics from the Honolulu Museum of Art,” will present highlights from the museum’s internationally renowned collection of Korean ceramics, some of which will be displayed for the first time. The exhibition is designed to convey a deep appreciation of one of the world’s most exquisite ceramic traditions as it developed over a thousand years.
“Splendor and Serenity” is supported in part by the Korea Foundation and the National Museum of Korea. The Museum, formerly known as the Honolulu Academy of Arts, is located at 900 South Beretania Street in Honolulu. It is open 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. There is a small admission charge for adults.
