  1. Arts in the New Normal: Works by the Han-Mee Artist Association of Greater Washington, DC

    October 15, 2021, 10:00 AM - January 23, 2022, 5:00 PM
    @
    Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center

    Arts in the New Normal showcases more than fifty works of art from Korean-American artists living and working in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Although the Covid-19 pandemic has forced many of us to change our plans and find creative ways to adapt, there is hope that society and life can return to some resemblance of life before the pandemic. Every artist has experienced this challenging time differently and we all understand that the new normal we are looking forward to may not be exactly as before. Still, we are hopeful for days when Covid-19 doesn’t dominate the news, and gathering with friends and family isn’t considered high risk behavior. The works in this exhibition reflect that hope and those contradictions of joy and loss, of fear and strength, that each artist has shared in a unique way.

    No Thyme to Cook

    The Bûche de Noël cake is a French Christmas tradition that dates back to the 19th century. The cake represents the yule log that families would burn starting on Christmas Eve, symbolizing the new year to come. It is thought to bring good luck to the family. While no one is positive on exactly how the yule log turned into a cake, everyone can agree it's a delicious tradition. Make this tradition part your family’s holiday this season as we show you how to make your very own.
