Mice Star in Jeongseon Mine Art Project


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.
