Sunny Kim: Cosmic Dreams, acrylic paintings

November 5 - January 7, 2022, Central Library 

 Sunny Kim Exhibit

The City Arts Commission is pleased to present the works of artist Sunny Kim, whose acrylic paintings draw upon images of the vast universe, the heavens, and the meaning of what lies outside the boundaries of the physical world in the spiritual realm. “The beauty of the Universe extends far beyond what one sees in a photograph of the heavens,” explains Kim. “I try to capture the emotions associated with the vast incomprehensibility of the cosmos and the expanse of eternity: the perfect union of chaos and order.”

Ms. Kim attended the Parsons School of Design in New York, as well as the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. She received her B.F.A. in Fine Arts at Seoul National University. Ms. Kim is the Museum Council President of the Orange County Museum of Art, as well as a Board Member of the Korean American Chamber of Commerce, the Newport Beach Arts Foundation, and is the Executive Advisor for the Korean Fine Arts Association U.S.A. Headquarters.
