Art on Lake in Budapest

Comment Posted by: Márk Mervai

A unique outdoor art exhibit

Following in the footsteps of a similar exhibition held here for the Millennium with the participation of twenty-two Hungarian artists, the lake in Budapest's City Park hosts Art on Lake. This unique contemporary art exhibition is organized by the Museum of Fine Arts. Sculptures by twenty-six contemporary artists from EU member countries are exhibited in the middle of the lake giving the impression that they are floating on water.

The sculptures can be viewed from the shore, but it's much more fun to rent a rowboat, available from 10 am to 10 pm daily. Boat rental costs HUF 1,500 per hour. The exhibition is open until September 4th, 2011.
