As of Wednesday October 4th, the streets of Bienne will feel like a giant art gallery. Covering a lovely path from the train station to the old town, the Arty Show is back, for its 5th edition.
Founded in 2018, the initiative mixes public space and art by bringing together shops, restaurants and cafés across the city with artists from around Switzerland and the world. The artwork will be displayed in the storefronts across over 30 locations.
If you think the logo looks like a vegetable, you’re right. And while the pun kind of works in English or German, it’s perfect in French: “artichaud” (artichoke) is literally pronounced “arty show”.
