International festival of sculptures and small architectural forms
Art is very important for public space, it makes us love the city
— Guillermo Peñalosa, an expert on the transformation of park areas and city streets
For the first time, Almaty hosts PARK FEST, the international festival of sculptures and small architectural forms, as part of the celebration of the City Day. This initiative was made possible by the the support of the Almaty Akimat.
Over 60 art objects created in different styles have been installed in the city. The artworks are categorized as traditional national style, modern interpretations by Kazakhstani artists, and works by foreign artists.
In addition to improving the appearance of the metropolis, the objects will enhance the the emotional background of its residents and facilitate the development of the cultural environment of the Southern capital.
