Museum Night 2013

September 07, 2013 Event date: 18.00 to 01.00

The Sitterwerk Foundation with the Art Library, Material Archive, Kesselhaus Josephsohn, and Studio House is also participating along with the Kunstgiesserei, the vacuum metallurgy, and the Fotolabor in this year’s St.Gallen Museum Night. This event takes place on Saturday, September 7, 2013, from 6 pm to 1 am. During this time, the premises of all the areas are open to the public, and tours are offered each hour as well as a casting demonstration at midnight.

This year, it will be possible to see the Vadian Monument, the landmark on the Marktplatz in St.Gallen, in a sheltered area next to the Art Library. Erected in 1904, conservation and restoration work on the monument will be performed in the Kunstgiesserei in the fall and winter for the first time in seventy years. Books, materials, and documentation connected with the theme of monuments and restoration will be presented in the Art Library and Material Archive. In the Studio House, it will be possible to look at works by Katalin Deér as well as works created by the current guest artists Allyson Vieira and Jochen Lempert. Sculptures by Hans Josephsohn will be on show during this year’s Museum Night not only in the Kesselhaus Josephsohn but also in the foyer of the newly constructed Fachhochschule: two half-figures have found a temporary home there.

Tickets for the Museum Night can be purchased at all of the participating institutions. A ticket for the Museum Night costs CHF 20 and provides admission to all of the participating institutions as well as free rides on the shuttle bus (from Stocken to the Sitterwerk) and on the Ostwind-Zone 210. Admission is free for children and young people up to sixteen years of age.
