Gallery in City Hall

Gallery in City Hall

A town hall at the same time a gallery? Yes, that's the way it is...! Over 150 paintings by well-known European artists are presented in the offices and hallways of the venerable building. From Finland in the north to Spain and Tunisia in the south, Great Britain in the west and Russia in the east - the artists have a "home" in Kirn and delight locals and tourists with their works. The idea of ​​bringing the art into connection with an administration building was initially controversial. But the philosophy of actively bringing art closer to people supported the project and so every visitor to the town hall comes into contact with the paintings, is addressed and trained in all his artistic feelings through eye contact. The Karlheinz breast exhibition, which also includes lyrical works by Margot breast, changes face every few months. Karlheinz Breast, the local artist, presents at least 50 new paintings to the public every year. How could this happen better than with a permanent exhibition in the town hall, where citizens and artists can find each other, where art can be viewed, discussed, accepted or rejected directly and without inhibitions by people - even if the citizens actually just want to Visit City Hall to apply for a new passport or building permit. The town of Kirn deliberately takes an unusual approach, makes art tangible and has created a unique selling point with the gallery in the town hall, which is of course also attractive for guests from outside who are interested in art and makes a visit to the baroque Kirn town hall worthwhile.
