There’s no doubt that Europe is a hot spot when it comes to art. There are so many museums and galleries there containing some of the best art in the world. Great art isn’t necessarily locked away in galleries either! There are lots of public art installations and sculptures that don’t require an admission fee and are helping to improve public spaces in their urban areas.
We love the way that Europeans can take a piece of history and turn it into art. For example, that’s what they’ve done with the East Side Gallery in Berlin, which covers the longest remaining stretch of the Berlin wall with hundreds of murals. Or the way that they can take a park and turn it into an immersive art experience filled with all sorts of great works, just like they did in Barcelona!
Now it’s time to explore 5 of the best public art installations that you’ll find in Europe:
East Side Gallery, Berlin
Parc Guell, Barcelona
Banc de Poissons, Côte d'Azur
Vigeland Park, Oslo
