Icheon is famous for its ceramics from all over the world. It is a city of cultural art, so there is a festival that is opened every year to make a sculpture park. The festival is called the Icheon International Sculpture Symposium.
The artists who are actively working in the areas of Icheon become the main focus in this event. It was started by the theme of "Love and Peace" in July of 1998. Twenty-four artists from 18 countries in August of 1999, 15 artists from 11 countries in September of 2000, and 13 artists from 13 countries in September of 2001 were invited. Through displays and field workshops, higher-quality products are shown to the public as each year goes.
