Art Fix: What You Didn’t Know You Were Missing

Did you know there’s an art gallery inside Youngsan Station on the green subway line? If so, I’d like to congratulate you on being a pretty observant person. Even though Metro Gallery is a reasonably large space inside the station, it’s very easy to pass by if you’re not looking for it. Maybe that’s because when you’re there you know that Homeplus is so close by and the only thing you’ve got on your mind is food? Don’t worry, no one’s judging.

Now that you know about it, go check it out! Metro Gallery is currently exhibiting paintings from various artists. Future events at Metro Gallery include an exhibition of interactive light art which will begin on April 1st and run until the end of August.

Metro Gallery isn’t Daegu’s only subway station gallery with art always on display. We’ve previously blogged about the many underground gallery spaces at Beomeo Art Street which is also located on the green line, just inside Beomeo station.

While these spaces could be nice for a quick stop between where you are and where you need to be, they’re well worth a trip of their very own.

To get to Metro Gallery: Get off the train at the Youngsan subway stop, walk upstairs towards the exits and follow the signs for Metro Gallery. The posted hours of operation are 11AM-8PM.

Have you discovered more Daegu subway galleries that others may be missing? If so, let us know in the comments so we can check them out!
