The rising star in Jeonju’s art and culure scene is ‘Seohakdong Art Village (Seohakdong Yesulchon)’. The village is not only home to many local artists, but also boasts the exhibitions, experiences, and urban sceneries that cannot be found elsewhere. The unique galleries of Seohakdong Art Village are locals’ favorite places. Seohakdong district was considered one of the more underdeveloped and poorer neighborhoods in Jeonju. However, since 2010, local painters, musicians, and other artists started opening studios in the district. Soon, a community of artists and art enthusiasts started to flourish.
