    From December 16 to January 8, 2012, the city is hosting the “Self-admiration” exhibition comprising extraordinary paintings by unknown artists. The exhibition was organized by bringing together paintings produced over a long period of time by members of an art club consisting of elementary school teachers in the Gyeonggi-do area.

    In addition, diverse music concerts including OST music, jazz, a 7080 concert, and classical music have been programmed for people who want to enjoy a great performance with their special someone at Christmas and the end of the year.

    On December 23, from 19:30 ~ 21:00, a concert consisting of OSTs from movies, TV dramas, and animated movies will be performed by the Crost Ensemble, a famous project group consisting of members of a Naver internet café group called the OST Music Ensemble Association. On December 24, from 18:00~19:30, several jazz artists will give a concert, including ‘Jazz on the Bridge’, which will be played as a joint performance by members of the Jazz Mania team.
