Arras Artitude, an outdoors art exhibition!
In Arras-en-Lavedan, contemporary works of art guide you as you stroll through the narrow streets, paths and meadows of this village. With just 500 souls, it is typically Pyrenean and located on sunny slopes. The exhibition highlights the gentleness and the poetry of the landscape.
The artistic exploration begins in the public gardens where you will find a marmot pushing a granite rock: the tone is set! The discovery tour continues aboard a boat filled with migrants, at the foot of a meditation chair, or following a diamond waterfall. Step by step, 26 panels lead curious souls on a route open day and night.
When night falls, there’s another dimension
In the evening, some works express themselves with more intensity, like the firefly stones, their luminous and captivating rhythm echoing through the starry sky. Video installations on heritage buildings lead you to the “Maison des Arts”.
Unnerved or charmed, the art of this mountain village will not leave you indifferent.
The art house
This former presbytery with its tower has been restored to house the “Maison des Arts” where local artists’ works and temporary exhibitions can be found.
Free visit thursday to monday from 15.00 to 18.00.
