Sitges' museums take their art to the beaches

A new campaign brings works from Cau Ferrat, the Maricel Museum, the Stämpfli Foundation and the Maricel Palace to the beach bars.


Enjoy art’s sun!... And the magic of our museums! Under this slogan, the Museums of Sitges have taken their works to the beaches to make them more visible and bring them closer to tourists.
 

The goal of this initiative is for sunbathers to get to know the patrimonial wealth of Sitges’ museums and the Maricel Palace. Twelve of Sitges’ beach bars have made large format reproductions of a work of art from the museums in their facilities, so that the thousands of visitors at the beach can get to know them and to seduce them so they’ll go to see them live in the museums themselves. The reproductions were made on large canvasses and are accompanied by big banners and promo material.
 

They are paintings by Santiago Rusiñol, Ramon Casas, Joaquim de Miró, El Greco, Arcadi Mas i Fondevila, Jaume Cabrera, Pere Stämpfli and Peter Klasen, in addition to a sculpture by Pere Jou and two spaces from the Maricel Palace. The works are part of the collections at Cau Ferrat, the Maricel Museum, the Stämpfli Foundation –  Contemporary Art Museum and the Maricel Palace.
 

The beach bars participating s in this initiative are Evi Platja (Aiguadolç), Els Balmins (Cala Balmins), Lisbona (Sant Sebastià), Fragata (La Fragata), Carbonell (L’Estanyol), Pako (L’Estanyol), Bleda (Riera Xica), Benaprès (Riera Xica), Sausalito (La Barra), la Barra (La Barra), Vinyet (Terramar) and Hola Club (Els Grills). At the same time, the campaign allows you to take a Beach Bar Tour around Sitges’ beaches to follow the twelve selected works. The initiative has been championed by Museus de Sitges with the collaboration of the Sitges Tourist Association of Beach Services.
