Daleville Korean Community

By  | 

More than 30 years ago, the Korean American Association of South Alabama was established.

Thursday, they made their mark on the city of Daleville.

The Daleville Cultural and Community Center celebrated its 10th anniversary this year.

Center employees are working to make the building more than just a place to hold events but also a location to showcase different organizations Daleville has to offer.

The Korean American Association of South Alabama is just one of them.

The group's paintings are on displayed in the center.

The association has an art club that meets monthly and they say it is open to the public.

"It is very important it is a way of better understanding the cultural background of the Koreans who have come here and settled here and have become citizens and better appreciate their view of how they have done their culture and traditions," said art student Gregory Barnes.

Members of the association say the art that is on display originated long ago by the nobles in Korea.

It was a way for them to discipline and train their mind.
