Shangri-La and animals are the major themes of this new exhibition of sculptures installed in the gardens of the Bastide Rose. The Salinger Museum pays tribute to Jean Giraud, known as "Moebius", and to Pierre Salinger.
In wood, steel, bronze, tree roots, resin or sandstone... from less than a metre to more than 3 metres high, all the animals reveal the talent of the 38 artists.
Walking in the park, you will come across a sheep with bells by François Arias, a shaman-stag and a shaman-bird by Michel Battle, running ostriches by Olivier Courty, a giant ant by Nicolas Eres, a bull by Jakos, a rhinoceros by Jonone, a grey heron by Flavie Van der Stigghel and many more creatures!
The Pierre Salinger museum pays tribute to the cartoonist Moebius, with a multitude of cartoons collected under the title "Les multiples de la Faune de mars".
Home of Poppy Salinger but also a place of meetings, the Bastide Rose next to the river welcomes many artists and monumental works to its vast garden. A commitment made from the moment of creation of the Poppy and Pierre Salinger Foundation.
The words of President J.F. Kennedy, "Art is not a form of propaganda, it is a form of truth", remain a key tenet of this place.
