KOREAN ART DISCOVERY FOR GHA TRAVEL AND THE ARTS CONNECTION
May 20-21, 2008
Seoul and Gyeongju, Korea
SEY ARTNET provided a special showcase tour of Korea for two US travel companies specializing in customized art tour programs: a San Francisco-based GHA Travel (www.ghatravel.com ) and a Houston-based The Arts Connection.
The tour started at the traditional part of Seoul (visiting Bukchon Hanok Village, Changdeok Palace, Contemporary Art Galleries in Samcheong-dong Area, and Antique Shops in Insa-dong), followed by a visit to the newer part of Seoul (making the rounds of contemporary art galleries and design shops in Nature Poem Bldg. and Trinity Place Bldg. in Chungdam-dong). On the next day, the group spent a full day in Gyeongju discovering the cultural heritages of the Silla Kingdom.
