About Us

     HMAA is an organization that is made up of Korean-American artists who have immigrated to the Washington D.C. metropolitan area during the last half century. In 1975, fifteen artists living in the Washington Metro Area founded HMAA as an organization for artists with Korean heritage to exhibit their unique work and encourage each other as they pursued their passion for art together.

     HMAA members have exhibited their work through individual and group exhibitions in various museums and galleries in the Washington area as well as in international locations for forty two years. Such venues include the Korean Cultural Center, Baltimore Art Center, Historical Society of Washington D.C., Maryland Hall, and Harmony Hall Regional Center. Works of some members are held in permanent collections at various museums.

     Our members are inspired to showcase their limitless vision, commitment, and individual creativity in order to share the spirit and culture of Korean-Americans living in the United States capital. We work to pass on our cultural heritage to the next generation, to enrich our community with cultural diversity, and to increase the awareness of Korean-American culture within the Metropolitan D.C. area.
