The Pocheon municipal government restored the environment by applying culture and art to a quarry abandoned since 2003 for the first time in Korea and opened this culture and art space on Oct. 24, 2009. Art Valley has been drawing substantial attention from the media as well as the academic world since opening and is widely known as a benchmarking space for local authorities from around the world including its approach to using abandoned quarries or mines. Art Valley greets more than 300,000 visitors every year with a variety of programs including special exhibitions and special and weekend performances. Visitors can also observe constellations in the Art Valley Observatory, which opened in July 2014.
