See Art Come to Life this Summer
While there are plenty of impressive art exhibitions going on indoors this summer, it is refreshing to be able to step outside when the weather is good and enjoy some art “en plein air.” The following are some of the highlights which are taking place this summer across the globe.
View a one of a kind living interpretation of Van Gogh’s A Wheatfield with Cypresses hanging outside of The National Gallery in London made from over 8,000 plants. Read more about the living wall created by General Electric.
In Paris, France there are some of the most incredible art museums in the world, but not far from Paris you have the rare opportunity to step into an artist’s world. Monet’s home and gardens in Giverny give visitors a glimpse of the beauty that Monet worked to create in his gardens and to capture in his paintings. Walk across the Japanese footbridge or gaze at Monet’s water lilies in bloom.
In August, the city of Antwerp hosts the annual Rubens Market. Get a feel for life during the time of one of the great masters Peter Paul Rubens as people dressed in period costume in the Grote Markt will make you feel as if you are transported back to the 16th century.
The city of Detroit is taking their art outdoors this summer with The Detroit Institute of Arts’ Inside/Out project. Visitors can see 80 reproductions of famous paintings from the Detroit Institute of Arts outdoors in parks and other places throughout the area.
