Presiding over our newest exhibition is an incredibly rare 40-foot-tall Buddhist banner that has never before left Korea. It is an unprecedented installation in the Great Stair Hall, and viewing it is for most a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Don’t miss its rarity, splendor, and power.

Opening tomorrow: “Treasures from Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty, 1392–1910.”
