Valmiera gets arty all April

Throughout April the northern Latvian city of Valmiera will be indulging in all maner of artistic endeavors.

Valmiera Art days start on April 1st with the art happening “Soļi”, inviting visitors with the help of a special map to find art in places where you normally wouldn’t expect to find it: the bus station, cafes, the bank, a grocery store – eight different locations around the city.

There is the chance to see paintings, graphic arts, photography, pottery, textiles, design, installations and sculpture made by the students of Valmiera Design and Art school.

The map is available at the Valmiera Tourism information center and if filled in correctly, might even win a surprise prize.

Over the years during the Valmiera Art days popular Latvian artists traditionally leave traces of their steps in the form of paintings around the city. There will also be theater performances, exhibitions, movies and performances.

The full program is available at the Valmiera city web page www.valmiera.lv and www.visit.valmiera.lv.
