Established in 1946, Hongik University is a private university highly regarded for its College of Fine Arts. The campus itself is decorated with beautiful sculptures. Since 1993, art students from the university and painters from across the country have been decorating the surrounding walls and roads with murals, transforming the street into a giant medley of art exhibitions. A flea market is open every Saturday from March to November in Playground Square in front of Hongdae, where local artists come and sell unique handcrafted items and works of art.
