I spent the day today at the Leeum (Samsung Museum of Art). I’ve been wanting to go ever since I first read about it aÂ few years ago. (I also had a very successful shopping day yesterday so it was a good way to give my credit card aÂ much needed break!)
The contemporary, modernÂ and traditionalÂ collections were just the right size – not overwhelming and not lacking.
As if the artwork wasn’t enough of a draw, the complex was designed by none other than Botta, Nouvel and Koolhaas. Yes, all three of them. Where else can you get so many greats at one site?
Seoul got a lot of snow overnight and the entire cityÂ was dusted in white. The mountains and rooftops lookedÂ really pretty but the streets wereÂ really slushy so it was a good day to spend indoors. And there’s just nothing likeÂ a dose ofÂ good art!
