“Art en ville” presents more than seventy works of art to be discovered or rediscovered in Lausanne’s public spaces. Developed and produced jointly by the Department of Culture and the Department of Architecture of the City of Lausanne, this guide invites you to stroll through streets, squares and parks on the trail of a rich and vibrant artistic heritage.
Users can make up their own itineraries based on sculptures, paintings, mosaics and installations to be found in Lausanne’s different districts and in this way create their very own outdoor museum, to be enjoyed in the space of a pleasant walk.
Lausanne is a city of culture that has always supported its artists; with this guide, it continues to promote their work. It also allows residents of Lausanne to look with new eyes on the riches of their city, and visitors to discover them for the first time.
The guide is free of charge and is available on printed maps and via www.art-en-ville.ch. It is intended for the curious at heart, as well as culture lovers, art enthusiasts, history specialists, friends of Lausanne, urban diehards and walkers of all ages.
