Eunice (Hyun-Kyung) Lee is an Arts Administration alumni who completed her doctorate here at FSU in 2007. She recently accepted an assistant professor position at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) in Ulsan, South Korea. She is currently teaching “Arts and Creativity,” a class at the division of General Studies in UNIST. Lee describes the purpose of the course as one that “gives students the big picture of how arts and technology can integrate and implement in many ways that make our lives better than before, showing them many cases of creative arts, innovative exhibitions, brilliant design museums, auctions and collections, etc.”
One portion of the course will be a theoretical student over creative industry in contemporary art and design trends in the context of increasing globalization of the art scene using specific exhibitions, museums, artists, and designers as case studies. The other portion of the course will have hands-on experience and critiques, which involves creating a work of art, organizing the idea, and executing the plan to be it reasonable. Ultimately, Dr. Lee will be teaching her students to train their eye so that they can apply their understanding to any of their chosen areas, and help them develop visual and form sensibility and creativity.
Prior to achieving this position at UNIST, she was an adjunct professor at Yonsei University in Korea, working for both the Techno Art Department as well as the Human Environment Design Department. Before teaching at the Yonsei University she held another adjunct faculty position at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Dr. Lee continues to publish research and finds her interests in integrated art and design education, role and function of the national design museums, theory and practice of cultural art and design, participatory art and design museums, and understanding visitors’ engagement in design museums.
Overall, Dr. Lee is excited to begin this new journey and looks forward to this great accomplishment.
FSU Department of Art Education is proud of Eunice and all our alumni.
