THE ARTE LAGUNA PRIZE
A KALEIDOSCOPE OF TALENTS ON SHOW IN VENICE
OPENING CEREMONY: 25/03/2017
For the past eleven years, international contemporary art has been the focus of a competition that has become increasingly important as one of the most interesting and prestigious in Italy: entitled "Premio Arte Laguna" (Lagoon Art Prize), this year it has reached its eleventh edition.
Colorificio San Marco has always been active in supporting and promoting art – and consistently linked to Venice as the hosting city – will be present as a technical partner, with the application of ColoreVivo, the new super-washable emulsion paint, which will be the background of the artwork.
The event will be awarding several prizes to artists in different disciplines: from painting and sculpture, to installations and photography.
The backdrop that will frame the finalists' works in March is also of great importance: the Arsenale, or former naval boat-building yard of the Venetian Republic.
The opening ceremony took place at 6 pm on 25 March, at the Nappe dell'Arsenale Nord.
The exhibition will be open, with no entrance fee, until Sunday 9 April, every day and without lunchtime closing, from 10 until 6 pm at the Arsenale Nord (outward: Waterbus 5.2, get off at Celestia; return: Waterbus 5.1).
