The exhibition has been coordinated through the joint efforts of Yedong Gallery, Sojunghan Nun Clinic, sculptor Lee Young-sup and the Korean Association for Children with Leukemia and Cancer (KACLC). Its goal is to raise recognition of the challenges and pain of child leukemia patients, and spread a culture of sharing throughout the local community.
This unique event transcends the norm of direct donation, as regional resources have collaborated to create deeper value through the shared appreciation of beauty and art. Attendees can view exceptional pieces by sculptor Lee Young-sup, as well as purchase displayed artwork for their personal collections. All exhibition planning is being coordinated by Yedong Gallery.
In addition, 40 percent of all exhibition profits will be donated to the KACLC for the children’s medical treatment expenses and welfare support fund. Among the volunteer workforce are college students such as Kim Jong-ho.
‘I’m proud to be involved in a meaningful experience that highlights both art appreciation and philanthropy.’
The first annual ‘Love of Life’ charity exhibition will be open through September 14, and will continue its mission in years to come by bringing together art enthusiasts to inspire a culture of sharing.
A reception will be held on August 12 at 6:00 pm in the Lobby of the Sojunghan Nun Ophthalmology Clinic, providing attendees the opportunity to learn more about exhibition objectives, hear from the artists and purchase select artwork.
