Mission Statement

The Korean American Museum's mission is to preserve and interpret the history, experiences, culture and achievements of Americans of Korean ancestry. In accomplishing its mission, the Museum works to become a center for cultural exchange, arts, and education, a catalyst for sharing ideas and resources, and a center for promoting and celebrating the diversity of culture in this country. It is important to the Museum's mission to help make the Korean American experience vivid and intelligible to other communities and to encourage these groups to find out more about Korean Americans in Los Angeles and elsewhere.

Description

One of the Museum's primary objectives is to introduce audiences to the sources of Korean culture, enabling younger members of the Korean American community and its neighbors from other ethnic communities to gain a greater understanding of this rich and complex civilization, a civilization that in Los Angeles, which has the country's largest Korean American population, has not had a consistent venue for its contemporary and traditional works of art and for a creative recounting of its history. The Korean American Museum provides an appropriate setting in Los Angeles to exhibit and focus the public's attention on this often overlooked culture, history, and art.
