Miro Center

Introduction
Cultural Development Center for Local Artists
With ART at Gung-dong Miro Center
The Miro Center, opened in November 2019, embodies the fusion of culture, urban development, and revitalization. Situated in the heart of Gwangju's art district, known as the origin of Gwangju's culture and arts, the center serves as an anchor facility supporting cultural and artistic services for the 'New Generation, New Era.' The existing 4-story building was remodeled, and Mudung Gallery was expanded, establishing a hub facility for the activation of the art district, including galleries, theaters, libraries, workshops, multipurpose spaces, and an outdoor event area.
The term 'Miro' combines beauty (미,美) and path (로,路), expressing the essence of the 'art street' by merging the beauty of art with finding societal value through beautiful artistic activities

  • SquareBeautiful StreetsEnvironmental Development
The Miro Center has four core values as the foundation for four goals.
  • First, Beautiful Local Values (Archive): Unearthing the local values of Art Street and establishing regional identity.
  • Second, Beautiful Relationships (Net): Discovering working groups within Art Street and building networks.
  • Third, Beautiful Practices (Lab): Operating small-scale programs focusing on the theme of culture, city, and regeneration.
  • Fourth, Beautiful Streets (Square): Environmental development and the operation of expanded projects to revitalize Art Street.
The Miro Center, based on these core values and goals, aims to go beyond artistic activities and seeks to inherit and realize the past values of Gwangju in line with contemporary trends. It aspires to become not only a cultural hub for Dong-gu but also a platform for art services that encompass the entire city of Gwangju.
