8th January 2009

This installation by the Korean-American artist Yong Soon Min was originally commissioned by the Asia Society, New York, at the time of the opening of its new facility in 2001. It was selected and acquired for SCMA through a fundraising effort by KASS (The Korean-American Students of Smith), who approached Museum staff in 2005 with a proposal to purchase a work of art by a female Korean or Korean-American artist for the collection as one of the inaugural initiatives of the new Korean Arts Foundation (KAF). To celebrate the acquisition and the efforts of KASS/KAF, the installation of Movement at the SCMA will be complemented by a small exhibition of works by established and younger practitioners: Kyung Woo Han, Shin Il Kim, Eunsun Lee, Nikki Lee, Jiha Moon, Young Min Moon, Jean Shin, Jieun Shin, Do Ho Suh, and Haeri Yoo. This exhibition is supported by The Brown Foundation, Inc. of Houston. Through January 11, 2009.

The Smith College Museum of Art (SCMA) is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for students and $2 for youth ages 6 to 12. Free admission to all the second Friday of the month, from 4 to 8 p.m. Free passes are available at Forbes Library, 20 West St., with a Forbes Library card.

Appropriating Art Into Dress
Curator Stella Schwartz 11 examines how patterns and motifs from certain early 20th-century European art movements filtered into everyday American dress by comparing three American dresses from the 1920s with artwork of the time. This project is the culmination of a research project proposed by Ms. Schwartz and Professor Kiki Smith and supported this summer by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The project involved the study and conservation of twenty-one garments from the Smith Historical Clothing Collection, an archive of over 1000 objects donated by college alumnae and friends. Through January 31, 2009.
