Stuck in a Rut? Travel

All you need is a computer and access to the internet and you can see the world. Delve into different cultures to see how art is integrated into how they communicate. Of course, you can also go to your near by art museum. From the other side of the world, Korea, there is a traveling exhibition, 'Treasures from Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty, 1392-1910'. This exhibition is now showing at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art through Sept. 28th. It will move on to Houston from there.

What I fine fascinating is the folding screens from this dynasty. Below are a few examples with some close up detail photos. You can get an idea of the symbolism used from the second image with side bar of symbols in black.
