The Valmiera Art Benches – on the route along the river Gauja

Instead of a canvas, a wooden bench, instead of exhibition halls - the urban environment of Valmiera, moreover, spectators have the opportunity not only to see the work of art, but also to sit in it. These are the Valmiera Art Benches. Also this year, Valmiera residents and town guests are delighted by new benches painted by artists. Inviting you to take a walk along the city's main street - the river Gauja, the Art Benches are located on a new route on both banks of the Gauja.
