Art Out & About: Europe’s Wild Wonders

Events — By Jacy Meyer on July 9, 2010 at 6:00 am

This is the kind of thing we like to discover in Prague – and thankfully, it is becoming more common: Free, outdoor exhibitions! In front of the stunning Rudolfinum and running along side the Vltava River, until August 22, you’ll find a photo exhibit showcasing some of Europe’s most fascinating wildlife. Nearly 70 wildlife photographers contributed 100 photos taken throughout the continent; offering up the best flora and fauna, in large format, nearly better-than-real-life quality.

The organizers’ mission was to capture the beautiful landscape of these countries; while it is still around to be enjoyed, and to offer a glimpse of places many people might not even know exist. Hopefully, visitors will be inspired to remember and cherish the world’s natural treasures. There’s even a special set of photographs dedicated to the beautiful and barren Sumava region in Southern Bohemia, along the German border.

Each of Europe’s 48 countries is represented by at least one photograph, so take the opportunity to discover something new. Best of all, it’s free and open 24 hours a day, so even if you are out a bit past museum opening hours, there’s no excuse not to get a midnight dose of culture.
