Street museum

Be an artist for one day: exhibit your own art!

This workshop proposes a popular museum, spontaneous and unfinished, in which the works exhibited are created by the people who walk down the street. There will be various frames available for the passersby, and everyone will be free to the choose the suitable drawing for the chosen frame, and to turn it into a work of instantaneous art. In this way, this improvised museum is an opportunity for everyone who want to express themselves freely and to let their creativity run free.
