This fall, the School of Art welcomes Hun Chung Lee, an independent studio artist working in Gyeonggi-do, Korea, just south of Seoul. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from Hong-Ik University in Seoul, an master’s degree from the San Francisco Art Institute in California, and is currently a doctoral candidate in architecture at Kyung-Won University in Korea. Lee was a resident artist at the Archie Bray Foundation in 1997 and 2001 and has an extensive exhibition record. His work is held in many public and private collections.
During this visit Lee will create work for the Archie Bray Foundation and for the MSU Copeland Gallery exhibition. While at MSU, Lee will host a ceramics workshop at the ceramics studio in Haynes Hall Oct. 13 and 14 during regular class times. He will give a lecture, open to the public on Oct. 13 from 5-6 p.m. in Cheever Hall, room 215. On Oct. 15, there will be a reception and gallery talk given by Lee at the Copeland Gallery from 7-9 p.m.
