Wendy Higgins called kudzu “the vine that ate the South.” As surprising as its fast sprouting green tendrils can be, there is no denying the lush, winding beauty that kudzu brings to summertime. Daniel Kelly has captured scenes from the Mississippi Delta covered in its grape scented leaves in his Kudzu series available at the link in our bio. Shown here are Kudzu 14 and 16.
In September 1994, an exhibition of traditional Japanese arts and crafts was attacked while on view in a Seoul museum.
Japan had recently proposed a $1B fund for Korean cultural and vocational projects as atonement for acts committed during WWI—a plan rejected as insufficient in both parts of Korea.
In retaliation, South Korean protestors gathered at the museum and attacked the displays, with chants and signs denouncing the proposed fund as “a gateway for cultural invasion.” #artdamaged
