Kwangju's Art Street

광주예술의 거리 (aka Kwanju's Art Street) is located in the Dong-gu district. Mokpo expat artists usually visit the street during their on their grocery or coffee runs and pick up art supplies, crafts, paintings, ceramics, souvenirs, etc; compared to North American prices supplies like paper and canvas is fairly cheap but transporting large items back to Mokpo can be troublesome. If you plan the trip on the weekend you can also shop at the Saturday flea market.

Art Street is close enough to Shinae YMCA (and related Starbucks) that you can get there by giving the same taxi directions and simply walk across the main street to the K.E.B. Bank and keep walking down the alley until you reach the police station.
