Scholars' Day: Treasures from Korea
Scholars' Day is a one-day symposium held in conjunction with the current exhibition Treasures from Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty, 1392–1910.

Featured scholars include Insoo Cho (Korea National University of Arts), Kyung Moon Hwang (University of Southern California), Burglind Jungmann (University of California, Los Angeles), and Sunglim Kim (Dartmouth College).
