Contemporary Art in the City

Public commissions

Parallel to the cultural season and exhibitions, Chinon proactively promotes contemporary art in particular through a public commission program.
The city’s original approach focuses on the shared story artists have had with the City. In this spirit, orders have been placed with such prestigious artists as sculptor Erik Dietman- who married in Chinon, François Morellet - whose parents resided in the city, and finally painter Olivier Debré who lived and worked in Touraine.
