2020 SUMMER EVENT VERBIER
CULTURE IN THE MOUNTAIN LANDSCAPE
Art, Music, Walk & E-Bike on 12 & 13 August
The Verbier Art Summit invites all culture lovers to join for 2 days filled with art, music, walks & E-Bike in and around Verbier. On 12 August 2020, a Summit Talk will take place at the W Hotel, where our Academic Director Jean-Paul Felley will interview the visual artist Valentin Carron, winner of the Prix Culturel 2020 by the Canton du Valais.
The Talk is followed by a gondola ride up the mountain to Ruinettes, followed by a curated walk through The Great Pause exhibition by the Verbier 3-D Foundation to la Croix-de-Coeur. At 2168 meters, this spot provides an exceptional panorama between the Combins and the Mont Blanc in the south and the Bernese Alps in the north. The guided walk continues with a forest route leading to the charming little chapel of St-Christophe, where the Verbier Festival will present an open-air chamber music concert Beethoven's Pastoral for the final day of its Virtual Festival. Like the annual Verbier Art Summit, all these events will be open to the public for free.
The next day, on 13 August, you are invited on a guided E-Bike tour to visit Carron’s exhibition at the Mauvoisin Dam: Un Ami Simple (A Simple Friend).
