"Art is very important for public space, it makes us love the city."
Guillermo Peñalosa, an expert on the transformation of park areas and city streets (Canada)
For the first time, Almaty hosts the International Festival of Sculptures and Small Architectural Forms PARK FEST. It is held on the initiative and with the support of the Almaty Akimat, as part of the celebration of the City Day. Created art objects will improve the appearance of the metropolis, the emotional background of residents and help develop the cultural environment of the southern capital.
Most of the more than 60 art objects have already been installed. They are made in different styles and conditionally divided into three categories:
- art objects in the traditional national style,
- art objects of Kazakh artists in a modern interpretation,
- foreign artists
By and large this is a new open-air museum!
