François Schneider Foundation

Between forest and mountain, the François Schneider Foundation is housed in a former bottling plant transformed into an art center. Around the unique theme of water, the Foundation conceives three exhibitions per year, alternating between artists from the Talents Contemporains competition, collaborations with major cultural institutions or by giving carte blanche to contemporary artists. In recent years, visitors have been able to navigate between the fountain-sculptures of Niki de Saint Phalle or Pol Bury, to lose themselves in the waterfalls of Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, to have their heads in the clouds and to embark on a journey through the collections of the Musée du Quai-Branly-Jacques Chirac. Artistic workshops, concerts, storytelling tours, picnics in the garden are also on the program!
