exhibition "70 Voices of 70 Years" in the museum




Yesterday I went to Gwanghwamun to sketch there. Visiting the museum I could see lots of records in living, democracy, industrial developments after the Independence, 1945, which was held for the celebration of 70th anniversary of National Liberation Day, Aug. 15, 1945. After sketching some on the rooftop and 3rd floor I walked and found people enjoying in pools which were set up for kids on the Sejong Street reserving the passage of cars. Citizens with their children seemed happy. I enjoyed with them sketching too.

어제 광화문에 있는 대한민국 역사 박물관에서 광복 70년을 기념하여 전시중인 "70년의 세월, 70가지 이야기" 를 관람하고 나와서 보니 세종문화회관쪽에 물미끄럼대와 풀장에 아이들이 몰눌이하는 풍경을 보았어요. 하루뿐이지만 광화문에 차량을 통제하고 시민에게 그 공간을 돌려주는 것같아 그들과 함께 시원한 물놀이를 한 느낌이었어요. 간밤에 천둥벼락이 쳤는데 다행히 낮에는 비가 안와서 다행이다 싶었습니다. 신촌에서도 한차례 같은 행사가 있었다고 했는데 이번에 광화문에서 만나게 되어 한장 그렸습니다.

Seoul City Hall is one of the most favorite place to sketch in downtown Seoul, so I posted some sketches on usk blog several times. The old city hall building and newly built city hall show not only combination of the architectural style, but historical change of the modern Seoul.
Last Saturday, for the 48th World Wide SketchCrawl, Seoul usk members met at the Seoul Citizens' Hall that is located on the basement floor of Seoul City Hall. The Citizens' Hall serves as a courtyard where Seoulites share their creativity and individuality while participating in various programs such as discussion meetings, workshops, seminars, concerts, exhibitions, special events, and wedding ceremonies.
The day was wet weather with the rainy season, so at first I sketched city hall buildings and streetscape outdoors between rains in the morning. After lunch, enjoying various kinds of performances at Citizens' Hall, I drew some colorful and fantastic sceneries with excitement.

서울시청은 서울의 근대사와 오늘을 이어주며 내일을 그려보는 타임 캡슐입니다~~
소리없는 변화 속에 그릴 때마다 숨어있던 장면들이 되살아나오는 듯 새롭게 다가옵니다.
스케치의 소재가 주변 가까이에, 가는 곳마다, 갈 때마다 다르게 펼쳐 있는 것이 
서울 스케치의 매력입니다.

Seoul City Hall

The stone building of old city hall and glass building of new city hall shows the trend of each era, and I think it is a workpiece that shows gap of the era and history of two building.
The old city hall went through sudden change of history, on the other hand I tried to sketch the new city hall, hoping to be seen bright growing future.
By the view from old city hall stairway, I could see the round grass plaza and tall hotel buildings and on the middle of that Namsan Tower and Namdemun.
On the 5th floor of old city hall, I could see the glass wall of the new city hall by close. It was interesting to see the crowded buildings from the higher place.
The jazz performance by JEON je-duk band was like an ice coke that makes the summer cool.

구청사의 석조 건물과 신청사의 유리 건물은 그 당시의 각각의 트랜드를 반영하고 두 건물간의 역사의 간극을 보여준 멋진 작품 같앗습니다.
구청사가 우리나라의 격변의 역사를 겪었다면 신청사는 투명하고 밝은 성장을 하기를 바라면서 스케치를 했습니다.
구청사 입구 계단에서 바라본 관경은 둥근 잔디 광장을 중심으로 높은 호탤 건물이 서있고 그 틈사이로 남산 타워와 남대문이 멀리 보였습니다.
구청사 5층에서는 신청사의 유리벽이 가까이 보이면서 빌딩 밀집지역을 보니 재미있었습니다.
오후 전제덕 밴드의 재즈 연주는 여름을 시원하게 식혀주는 청량제와 같았습니다.

It was raining all day in rainy season. Thirteen sketchers joined us. We were lucky to sketch inside the city hall enjoying various kinds of events under the title of "Play Seoul" held by city hall. Newly built city hall and former old building gave lots of drawing subjects. For the Art Festival(Jul 24 - Aug. 6, 2015) event lots of paintings and sculptures were exhibited on lobby for citizens. I drew some and enjoyed music and dance held from three o'clock. City Hall helds such program 'Love city hall on Saturday' on last Saturday every month for citizens. Though it rained we enjoyed all the shows and cool space in city hall.

Thank you all the participants : Kim Ji-hong, Jeong Ji-young, Jo Hye -kyoung, Shim Jung-ae, Kim Ok-kyung, Ahn Jae-hyang, Anna Fee Brunner, Kiki, Lee Yong-hwan, Kim Mi-kyung, Yun Young-sook, Moon Hyung-in, Yoo Byung-hwa

어제 종일 비가 왔습니다. 그래도 시청사 안은 각종 회화 작품과 문화 체험을 하려는 어린이와 시민들로 붐볐어요. 오후 세시부터 열리는 음악 프로그램에서 다양한 밴드의 음악과 드로잉 쇼를 보며 스케치할 수 있어 더욱 즐거웠습니다.

참가하신 분들 : 김지홍님, 정지영님,  조혜경님, 심정애님, 김옥경님, 안재향님, 안나 브루너, 키키, 이용환, 김미경, 윤영숙, 문형인, 유병화

새로 오신 분들은 첫날 오셔서 여러가지로 어려우셨겠지만 앞으로도 자주 참여하시면 좋겠습니다.

감사합니다!
