About The Sylvia Wald & Po Kim Foundation

The Sylvia Wald & Po Kim Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts foundation promoting East-West cultural exchange through the arts. In addition to perpetuating and preserving its founders’ unique legacies and collections, the foundation supports the contemporary artistic community through exhibitions of international artists, with a primary focus on Asia and Korea.

The foundation’s programs incorporate three floors of temporary and permanent exhibition space – the 4th floor gallery and two upper floors with the founders’ studio-lofts and rooftop garden. By working together with international artists and institutions, the organization provides a catalyst for deeper intercultural dialogue between the diverse community of New York and the artistic communities of the world.

The foundation’s efforts to maintain and expand its exhibitions and special events would not be possible without your help. All our exhibitions and special events are presented free to the public because of the generosity of donors like yourself.

Providing educational programs on traditional Korean/Asian music, arts, dance, and food, Donghwa’s fundamental mission is to create a better understanding and appreciation for the intrinsic values, traditions and practices of East Asian cultures.
