The Prologue Of Culture and Arts Projects

Samsung takes lead in the globalization of Korean art and culture by nurturing creative talents and by promoting Korea’s cultural prominence.

Culture is a major representative of an era, and it affects everyone's lives, whether or not you are aware of its influence. It is our firm belief
that our rich heritage must be preserved and that the arts belong to everyone, not to any particular elite.

The Samsung Foundation of Culture is the embodiment of such principles, established in 1965 when public awareness of cultural preservation
and arts institutions was largely nonexistent in Korea.

A thriving arts and culture environments cannot be achieved overnight, or just through large cash infusions;
such efforts must be accompanied by sincere interest and passion. In its pioneering role, Samsung has made significant contributions to
invigorate Korean arts and culture through an expansive roster of activities.
The Samsung Foundation of Culture has been a beacon in Korean arts and culture development, committed to preserving and perpetuating our traditional culture,
heralding its achievements around the world while fostering healthy international cultural exchanges,
We have been actively sponsoring Korean art galleries and exhibits in the most prestigious museums around the world.

At the same time, the Foundation nurtures promising new talent and make exhibits, performances, and other delightful cultural events more
accessible in people's daily lives, Institutions such as Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, and the Ho-Am Art Museum, provide not only exhibition space,
but a vibrant, dynamic cultural forum open the anyone.
