3rd Swiss Open-Air Sculpture Exhibition Biel



For the third time, the city of Biel is honoured to host the Swiss Sculpture Exhibition (Schweizerische Plastik-Ausstellung). We are very happy to provide our most beautiful park forthis unique demonstration of creativity of our sculptors for we are fully aware of the magnitude of commitment which our hospitability entails. 

I hope that the number of visitors will be great even though art may never be a mass attraction. And while some works may fill some viewers with wonder, they may provoke the honest protestations of others. That is as it should be, and so the 3rd Swiss SculptureExhibition shall fulfill the same significant mission as its predecessors, which is to rouse us from a certain indifference that threatens us all in these busy times. 

I would like to offer a word of thanks and recognition to the artists and, most especially, to the Exhibition director, Dr. Marcel Joray, and his staff. Their intellectual endeavours and high organisational skills have once again bestowed a great gift upon our city.

Dr. P. Schaffroth, Mayor of Biel
