– “Street Art - Real Art or Vandalism?

There was a time when graffiti was frowned upon and certainly not considered as art. But times have changed, and urban art is becoming increasingly popular and a significant art history movement. In France and around the world, street artists who once dodged municipal authorities are now being commissioned by them to decorate their towns, sometimes on a monumental scale.

Nîmes is one of France’s top cities for street art, sponsoring artists to create full-scale art works in the Gambetta and Richelieu neighbourhoods as part of the annual Festival d’Ouf! (6 Sept - 31 Oct).

Led by the Nîmes Tourist Office’s English-speaking street-art expert guide and illustrated by these urban art pieces, this visit will help you discover the role of street art in art history and in today's society in a broader sense.
More details to follow.

November – Le Museon Arlaten 
- newly re-opened after a 13-year hiatus and renovation, this stunning museum in central Arles showcases the history, traditions and heritage of Provence. The visit includes lunch.
