The end of the second semester approaches and exam time is here. It is not all bad news though as this also gives students time for other things before the end of term. On Thursday June 7, students will have their Art History exam followed by a Visual Communication exam then after this double delight, EPAC students will visit the Fondation Pierre Gianadda, the internationally renowned art gallery.
The latest exhibition is "Impressionist treasures" and features art from Degas, Cézanne, Monet, Renoir, Gauguin and Matisse. http://www.gianadda.ch/
The Fondation Pierre Gianadda was recently awarded the prestigious Prix Europa Nostra 2019 http://www.europanostra.org/ for its services to art and cultural heritage. EPAC students will find plenty to inspire and motivate them including the sculpture garden, vintage car museum and roman artifacts found in Martigny.
Gianadda is only one of many artistic and cultural attractions close to EPAC. You can see more of these attractions at http://www.martigny.com/en/art-culture-switzerland to discover what art lovers in the region can look forward to this summer. EPAC students already have in-depth knowledge of Valais through the digital card game they developed as part of the bicenteniale celebrations of Valais joining the Swiss Confederation.
