SCULPTURE LINE FESTIVAL – PRAGUE
1 June – 30 September 2016
organised by Smart Point Office
CRAG is pleased to take part to the open-air exhibition project Sculpture Line, a unique opportunity to present sculptures and art objects to both citizens and visitors of the Czech capital in an attractive setting.
We present the sculptures by Riccardo Cordero, well known italian artists, who works between Italy, China, Germany and Switzerland.
The City of Prague offers the best exhibition place, be it frequented areas or less-expected locations,
both in the centre and outskirts of the metropolis. Works of art by leading local & international
artists interact directly with the city and invite you for a walk of discovery. The aim of the festival
is to enrich the public space, offer a new view of the architectural context and, hopefully, become
a new tradition. We invite you to take to the streets where art awaits you. Join the Line, enjoy the Line!
