Opening this October: Carl Spitzweg column for Rüsselsheim

Last week, Gewobau Managing Director Torsten Regenstein and Karl-Heinz Becker, chairman of the six-member selection jury, presented the winner of the sixth call for entries - and we can already look forward to seeing the artwork for the outdoor area of the Spitzwegstraße 1-3-5 residential complex. The design by artist and sculptor Miriam Lenk won the anonymous invitation competition, in which eight artists from all over Germany took part. The artist, who lives and works in Berlin and on Lake Constance and is exhibiting in Venice and Frankfurt this year, has taken up various works by Spitzweg. Figures and details from famous paintings by Carl Spitzweg can be found on the so-called Spitzweg column, which will be around three meters high and made from a mixture of epoxy resin and stone powder. These include elements from "The Sorcerer", "The Poor Poet" and "The Butterfly Hunter". (Main- Spitze from May 7, 2024) https://www.main-spitze.de/lokales/kreis-gross-gerau/ruesselsheim/xyz-3546263
