Place of event
statutární město České Budějovice a Flera s. r. o.
Art in the city is a sculpture exhibition that enriches, adds to or enhances the historical center of České Budějovice. The city and the parks become an open-air gallery, and art thus comes to the spectator in its natural space and not to the art viewer as it happens in the galleries. And that's the main benefit of the exhibition in the public space. In any case, it gives reason to think and, above all, a slightly different view of the world around us.
The eleventh annual sculpture exhibition "Art in the City" is expanding this year to other South Bohemian towns. It is beautiful that this year you can actually fly along the Vltava River behind the statues.
Beginning in Černá v Pošumaví, do not miss PETMAT recycled PET bottles in cooperation with CTU, which is backlit at night or the statue of the windmill. At Lipno you can sail to the Rabbit Island, where you can enjoy a picnic on your sculpture. In Ceske Budejovice, among other things, he will present his work with many famous names such as Čestmír Suška, Michal Gabriel, Václav Fiala or Jaroslav Róna and Milan Cais in the Mariánská Gallery. From Budějovice, you can climb to Kleť behind the statue of Ondrej 4. Around the Hluboká you can enjoy the "tour de art" hanging statues above the cycle path, further installation can be found in the AJG castle complex Hluboká, but also at the castle of Ohrada.
Or a spiritual sculpture at the Munice Pond by Antonin Kaspar. The Vltava River runs through Temelín Nuclear Power Station as a cooling liquid, where we have another sculptural but also video stop, here is 6/6 video performance Milan Caise. In Týn nad Vltavou go to the pedestrian bridge, which is guarded by the figure of Jakub Flejšar and a little further on the castle of Mitrowicz Women and Greyhounds Miroslav Straka. From Vltava you can go to the village of Veselí nad Lužnicí, where you can find the last two installations.
Pleasant and inspirational summer sculpture in southern Bohemia with the "Art in the City" Festival!
