From deep in the heart of Nantes out to the shores of the Atlantic, Estuaire is an open-air art collection unlike any other. These 33 works offer 33 occasions to stop and appreciate contemporary art stretching over 60 kilometres of estuary.
The Estuaire itinerary is the happy marriage between landscape, art and the river. This permanent collection can be discovered on foot, by bike, by car, or even by boat, every summer. And these different ways of exploring it offer a different perspective on these works, all of which were made by today’s greatest artists.
