Event Description:
Peonies are a national floral emblem of China. They have been cultivated for at least 1500 years. These lush, rounded blooms with slender, elegant stems have great symbolic and cultural significance across East Asia, including Korea and Japan where they have strong associations with prosperity and friendship. They are regarded as omens of good fortune and happy marriage.

In Luscious Peonies, noted artist Seongmin Ahn incorporates these richly symbolic blossoms in her paintings as part of her exploration of identity as "a Korean-American immigrant with dual values in both cultures."

Free & open to the public.
