National museum invites foreigners for day out
The National Museum of Korea is inviting 100 foreigners and their friends to enjoy a summer day with various events and jazz music this coming Saturday.
“A Special Saturday with Masterpiece” will feature a variety of programs related to the museum, including tours, cultural experience programs and a jazz festival.
The program will begin at 2 p.m. and participants will receive souvenir T-shirts after registration. They will tour the permanent exhibits of the museum, including the special exhibition “Korean Art from the United States.” A quiz with prizes will be held throughout the tour. Participants will also learn to produce a traditional Korean “grass and insect painting” on a paper fan.
Midway through there is a break then the program continues with a look around the outdoor exhibits and a tour of “The Civilizations of Turkey: Emperors in Istanbul.” At 9 p.m. the event will wrap up with a concert, “Jazz on a Summer Night” at the Open Plaza.
The event is only for international residents and Koreans can participate as the guest of a foreign partner. Those interested should email their name and country of origin to email@example.com by 1 p.m. Wednesday with a brief description of why they want to participate in this event. Providing other background information such as age, gender, cellphone number, Facebook and/or Twitter account would be useful to find out about future events.
The 100 winners will be chosen by lottery and announced Wednesday.
