A one-of-a-kind encounter between nature and art in the amazing setting of the Valais Alps, the Vision Art Festival is a non-profit association aiming to create an open-air museum in the mountains, spread over an incredible surface located between 1.500 and 3.000m above sea level.
It all began with the crazy idea of its founder and Art Director Gregory Pages: Why not ask artists to express themselves on the grey concrete surfaces of cable car stations, parking lots and other naked walls?
With its spectacular circular view, coiled up on a mountainous plateau overlooking the Rhone valley and the Valais Alps, the renowned Swiss resort of Crans-Montana offers an ideal platform to prize the contemporary currents of the Urban and Street art scene showing the work of artists who have taken art into open space.
The second edition of the Vision Art Festival which took place in August, from 20 to 27, just before the mythical Omega European Masters, has just finished and here are the first pictures of the walls. Much more to come!
