What happens when food and art get together? The results don’t get much better than GYOPO‘s recent fundraiser, which helped put the LA-based coalition of diasporic Korean artists, patrons, and arts professionals on the map. The gathering was a twofer. The Korean harvest festival, Chuseok, served as an impetus for a diverse group of creatives to feast for a good cause while catching summer’s last rays. Attendees included Christine Y. Kim, Anicka Yi, EJ Hill, Vivian Bang, and Esther Kim Varet who sipped cocktails provided Kikori Whiskey and bites by Genwa and Bao Dim Sun House.
