The Chung Young Yang Embroidery Museum is located in the Renaissance Plaza at Sookmyung Women’s University. Visitors can get to the museum easily by entering the Renaissance Plaza from Snowflake Square. The Museum opened in May 2004 to boost evaluation and awareness about embroidery and fabric art. Head of the Museum, Chung Young Yang, first renowned in the US and became known in Korea through a special exhibition named <Korean Embroidery> at Sookmyung Women’s University. Since that exhibition, there have been a lot of exhibitions due to her effort. From October 24, 2019 to June 30, 2020, the exhibition, <Serving the Celestial Throne: Court Officials Robes of Qing China and Joseon Korea>, will be on display. The exhibition presents official attire worn by officers of the governmental bureaucracy during Korea’s Joseon dynasty and China’s Qing dynasty. It also displays portraits of government officials as well. The Museum hopes visitors will appreciate the beauty of these fine court costumes as well as the embroidering techniques that were used to create designs on the costumes. Visitor Lee Sumin, Division of Business Administration ’19, said, “It is a rare and extraordinary exhibition highlighting Joseon and Qing dynasties from the perspective of their embroidery work. I didn’t know such a museum existing on campus before my friends told me about it. I hope more Sookmyungians, in particular those interesting in art, visit.” The Chung Young Yang Embroidery Museum also offers special practical courses: Traditional Embroidery and Quilt Specialist. Anyone wishing to learn about embroidery and quilting are welcome to join. Besides its exhibitions and experience courses, The Chung Young Yang Embroidery Museum tries to make embroidery and fabric art more popularized and accessible to the regular public. SMT hopes Sookmyungians visit The Chung Young Yang Embroidery Museum and other art places at Sookmyung Women’s University.
