ZAGREB, June 8, 2021 – The Art Park project will once again this summer be located in Ribnjak Park.
The old park, a new location, right next to the Ribnjak Youth Center, will be a place of space adventures. The launch of the Art Park 006 aircraft is scheduled for the weekend of June 11, 12 and 13, 2021, when visitors can expect a freshly painted and designed street art gallery, an excellent music program and pleasant company. This year’s main art theme is called “A Space Odyssey: 2021.” and takes visitors on one special journey.
“Kubrick’s legendary 2001: A Space Odyssey happened in the future, and our space odyssey takes you directly to the present. The time for some “new” epidemics has already arrived, cryptocurrency payments are slowly taking the lead, and we are increasingly imagining ourselves flying towards some other planets. Great local artists have joined forces, so expect a big burst of colours, and since we last almost three months, we have designed a diverse program and something for everyone,” said Boris Bare, one of the organisers of the Art Park and artistic director of the project.
This year’s large wall mural is created by the art collective Jutarnja šetnja.
“This year, we are invited to paint a 60-meter-long wall that will give the new location of the Art Park a completely fresh artistic look. The topic was space, and in order not to reveal too much, we invite you to come on Friday and launch with us in that direction,” said Jutarnja šetnja.
At the weekend opening of the Art Park, visitors can expect hours and hours of good music. The finest musical beats on Friday will be chosen by Jeff Jarunsky and Kuna and will prepare the audience for an exciting Saturday, when master dancers Carlito and Zak will perform. Saturday is also reserved for the concert of the interesting duo La papa, consisting of Nikola Dabac (ukulele, vocals) and Stanislav Kovačić (cello, backing vocals). A light Sunday afternoon ride will be taken over by Dj Jogurt with sports relaxation and table tennis.
After the weekend, the Art Park on the Pond will remain open for socialising until September 4, 2021.
Visitors in the summer can expect numerous workshops for large and small, music and film evenings, morning yoga classes, a programme dedicated to sustainability, recycling and “green stories ”, hours and hours of table tennis, swinging on the reading swing, regular vintage flea markets, picnics, exhibitions and presentations of young artists and much more content for all generations.
The project is held with the support of the Tourist Board of the City of Zagreb, the City of Zagreb and the support of friends and sponsors of the Festival such as Pivovara Medvedgrad, Pipi, Paycek / Electrocoin.hr, Bačelić profi shop, Chromos paints and varnishes, Garica, Graffitishop.hr, HSM informatika, Acer Croatia, Fraktura, Floraart, Jamnica.
