Over the years, one of ART JOG's most notable attractions is the transformation of the front yard of the venue. ARTJOG commissions an individual or a group of artists to makeover the front face of a building and/or the front yard, where the exhibition is held, according to the main theme "Enlightenment". This is the icon of ART JOG and had never failed to attract the attention of its visitors.
