ART PROJECT: FLOWER LABYRINTH

On Saturday 17 June Amstelveen celebrated the city’s international band of jumelage with Villa El Salvador in Peru (20 years) and Berlin Tempelhof-Schöneberg (60 years). For this special event, artist Stephanie Rhode created seven houses on the city square. Through the seven houses was a path (labyrinth) of grass where you could walk.

CREATING COLOURFUL ART TOGETHER

By working together on this project, people from Villa El Salvador, Berlin Tempelhof-Schöneberg and Amstelveen share experiences, culture and fun. The theme of the project is to understand each other and to find the way together.
The houses are a part of the philosophical aspect of life. The houses are a symbol that can be interpreted in many ways. The artist’s vision of the project is: the human as a being and the path in life that every human takes.
It is great to see how a project with flowers can bring people from all over the world closer together.

The local broadcast station RTVA made a news item of the project. It is only available in Dutch, but pictures say more than a 1000 words (right?!).
