The project #artofdanube – experiencing nature through art with the support of the Baden-Württemberg Foundation and carried out by the non-profit association AWP – Association for Wildlife Protection from Freiburg, Germany, is coming to Romania.
Artist Ana Tudor, who lives in the Serbian town of Sonta, captured the unique Danube landscapes and their endangered wildlife on 1 km of canvas.
As part of the project, the world’s longest painting of the Danube River will go on tour this summer. The traveling exhibition will stop in 13 cities along the river to raise awareness for environmental protection, and provide a platform for informative and creative events.
The traveling exhibition will stop in Sulina on July 30, in Tulcea on August 4 and Galati on August 5. The events includes a diverse program that artistically deals with the topic.
The painting can be seen in good weather, from 18:00 till dawn. The event is free of any charge.
The precise programme is available on www.artofdanube.org.
The Danube, the river represented on the painting, is the second largest river in Europe, stretching on 2,857 kilometers, crossing four Capital cities and ten countries. It provides drinking water for 20 million inhabitants and hosts a wide variety of endangered species. The continuous building works and pollution are yet jeopardizing the sensitive habitat of the people and animals from the Danube areas.
This project aims at especially using the #artofdanube hashtag in an active way to encourage attendance. The public is called to put its stamp for the environmental protection and for the social engagement by spreading the hashtag on social media.
