Interweaving includes nearly twenty pieces of art by six members; Dong Hee Lee, Dong Kyu Kim, Jayoung Yoon, Jin Cho, Stephanie S. Lee, and Sueim Koo. All of the participating artists are Korean-American who was born and spent childhood in Korea prior to living in the U.S. to continue their journey as an artist. Mediums include hand-stitched art, hand-carved relief, and art pieces made of human hair.

Each artist’s struggle, progress, and change under different environments are reflected in their works. Their unique approaches create dynamic energy yet it is appealing harmoniously at the same time. It’s a story of them on a small scale, but it is not any different than all the immigrants’ life in U. S. when it expands.
