Korean Bell Has Arrived!
This week the three ton bell from Korea was installed in the custom built bell pavilion at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna Virginia. This is the crowing Jewel of the Korean Bell Garden that has been taking shape over the last year.
This is the only traditional Korean garden with bell in the western hemisphere, and the only Korean bell on the east coast.
The bell combines images of nature from both Korea and Virginia as a true symbol of the Korean-American population in this region.
May 14, 2011 at 11:00 A.M. is a free dedication event for the bell. This event will include free Korean food and cook books, as well as Korean artists. Please join us.
