In stark contrast to the whimsical flowers and comical faces inscribed on traditional hanji paper scrolls that were on display, the thunderous sounds of Samulnori-a four-piece Korean percussion ensemble-reverberated through the walls of the at the Korean Cultural Center Washington DC on Sunday, April 22.

Despite steady rain throughout the day, nearly 100 guests gathered for the opening reception of the Flowers and Sound exhibit, featuring works by 18 Korean artists who have reimagined traditional Korean folk paintings. The occasion was celebrated with a rousing performance by the Lee Young Gwang Percussion Ensemble.

"That was, for me, just about the most enjoyable event ever at the KORUS House", said guest Michael Zak. "Thank you for the event".

This exhibit, organized by the Korean American Cultural Arts Foundation, will remain on display through April 30, 2012. The Korean Cultural Center is open to visitors 9am to noon and 1:30-5:30pm, M-F.
