Düsseldorf artists open their studios
Have you seen the the blue 'star' posters all around town and wondered what they are for?
Kunstpunkte happens on two weekends in August 21/22 and 28/29. Over 300 artists studios are open to the public, Saturdays from 2 - 8pm and Sundays from 12 - 6pm. The listings of the artists participating can be found on the website www.kunstpunkte.de
Click first on the weekend you would like to go under 'Wochenübersicht' and the list of artists & their addresses will appear.
As the studios are spread all over the city there is also a shuttle bus available. For €15 a bus takes you around selected studios for 3 hours, the tours are accompanied by an artist. Buses leave from The Rheinterrassen, Josef-Beuys-Ufer 33 at various times. Tickets available from Heinrich-Heine-Alle 24.
For the first time, this year's event will also be accompanied by a musical programme.
Leaflets with a map of all participating studios can be found all over the city in bars, cafes and restaurants so you that you can also just make your own way.
