Art on every street corner in Saint-Germain since 2000
The Parcours Saint-Germain's mission is to bring together the inhabitants, users and brands of the famous district around a cultural event contributing to the promotion of contemporary art.
Each year, the Parcours creates a walk through twenty or so places chosen, involving the historical heritage of Saint-Germain-des-Prés by inviting artists to express themselves in the partner venues.
Directly involved from shop windows to café terracesThe Parcours Saint-Germain offers the possibility of encountering contemporary artistic creation in the very midst of living environments, where one would not expect to find it. The event thus perpetuates the long tradition that has made Saint-Germain-des-Prés one of the symbols of Parisian cultural life.
