Korean traditional art: beautiful, unique and distinctive
Deep in Los Angeles' Koreatown is a folk-art studio with a unique name appropriate in the immensely diverse City of Angels: Casa Muhyang. The Korean traditional arts and crafts (called gyu-bang arts in Korean) is the focus of this unique studio that has a name that is a juxtaposition of two foreign words -- one Spanish, the other Korean.
The name suits this uniquely Angeleno establishment run by two recipients of the the L.A. Treasure Award from the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, and introduced to the California Arts Council by the director of LA Commons, an arts organization that supports community building through the arts and is a California Arts Council Creating Public Value grantee.
