The Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art’s Asian collection totals over 3,000 works from different geographical regions of Asia. The Korean collection is the smallest in number (190), but has offered one of the greatest impacts towards scholarship, technical investigation, and collaborative projects. The Korean collection at the Harn Museum was recently featured in UF’s Explore magazine.
