Artwalk at the Walensee
On the occasion of the Swiss Expo.02 the artwalk of Daniel Ambühl was a much-admired art object. Now, we are privileged to present an artwalk at the Walensee, which connects 2 watersides, 2 cantons, art and local history to an interesting ensemble and is organized for longer periods. The installation allows you to create an artwork by yourself. Using seven colours and a sheet of paper, an individually crafted souvenir of the Walensee is being originated.
