Every year since July 27, 2008, Remember727 has commemorated the Armistice Day on which the ceasefire treaty was signed on July 27, 1953.
Remember727, together with the Korean Cultural Center, hosts its 7th Annual Armistice Day Commemoration & Peace Vigil to remember the Korean War and the ceasefire agreement that was signed on July 27th.
Join us in the lighting of the candles at 7:27pm around the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, as we pay tribute to the “Forgotten Heroes” and hope for peace on the Korean Peninsula, and where conflict persists.
Special features include performances, and an outdoor exhibition of The Spirit of Peace and Healing: Out of the Trauma of the 6/25 War, an exhibition of contemporary works by Korean artist Eunsook Lee, who grafts the tragedy of separation from the Korean War and the grief of wartime victims to brilliantly illuminated, articulately constructed installation art.
Meet rain or shine. Candles, light snack, and water provided.
