About The Event

Join CMA staff for a quick bite of art history. Every first Tuesday of each month, hear from curators, conservators, scholars, and other museum staff for 30-minute talks on objects currently on display in the museum galleries.

Into the Seven Jeweled Mountain is an immersive hike through a mountain in North Korea’s northernmost province with dynamic atmospheric changes, unique geological features, and breathtaking vistas. The exhibition offers a rare chance to discover a place normally beyond reach and represents a remarkable collaboration between the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Overseas Korean Cultural Heritage Foundation. The immersive experience is now on view at both the CMA and the National Palace Museum of Korea in Seoul.”

Sooa McCormick, Korea Foundation Curator of Korean Art, introduces her research on the historical accounts used in the content of this groundbreaking exhibition, and Jane Alexander, chief digital information officer, provides a rare window into the production process for immersive digital experiences and a glimpse into what’s next. 

Into the Seven Jeweled Mountain is on view through Sunday, September 29, 2024, in the Arlene M. and Arthur S. Holden Gallery.
