New information signboards were unveiled at the Old Korean Legation Museum in Logan Circle, Washington during a ceremony held by the Korea Heritage Service (KHS) and the Overseas Korean Cultural Heritage Foundation (OKCHF) on Tuesday.The project began last year with discussions between the OKCHF and POSCO International, which produced a total of five indoor and outdoor signboards using its high-resolution printed steel PosART technology, the KHS said.

These signboards include photos of the Legation from the late 19th century, enhancing visitors’ understanding of the building’s original form and its restoration process.The National Heritage Administration recognized the project for improving the viewing environment and public design of the Legation, awarding POSCO International a plaque of appreciation.Additionally, the KHS, the OKCHF and POSCO International are supporting the installation of signboards for other Korean heritage sites in the U.S. to promote and spread the value of overseas cultural heritage. An MOU was signed between the OKCHF and POSCO International on the day of the unveiling ceremony.Future installations are planned for the Korean National Association Memorial Building in Los Angeles, The Philip Jaisohn Memorial House in Philadelphia, and the Korean Methodist Church and Institute in New York.KHS and the OKCHF are committed to introducing and sharing the value of Korean cultural heritage worldwide by leveraging the expertise of relevant companies to promote 슬롯놀이터 cultural heritage outside the country.
