JEONGSEON, Aug. 29 (Korea Bizwire) — Jeongseon County in Gangwon Province, home to an abandoned mining town, has been reborn as an exhibition space for artwork.
The county’s urban renewal support center carried out a “one-pyong art” project to install artworks by utilizing topographical features in an alley on 650 Street.
The artworks are based on a mouse character, which is closely related to coal mining. To guarantee the safety of pedestrians at night, the county installed solar-powered lighting.
The name 650 Street was taken from the 650 pits of the Dongwon Consolidated Mine Development’s Sabuk Mine, which produced coal from 1963 to 2004.
