The Ark - artist Virgil Scripcariu

ArtReach brings The Ark from Bucharest

In conjunction with our fantastic partners at the Romanian Cultural Institute, ArtReach is thrilled to be preparing to bring The Ark installation from Bucharest.

Romanian artist Virgil Scripcariu’s amazing sculptural work will be installed in Leicester for the period of Night of Festivals SPECIAL EDITION from 2 October, with the installation remaining in place for a period beyond the Festival.

The Ark, a stunning willow sculpture weighing over one ton, has been seen in public space in Bucharest and Brussels and now takes the long journey to Leicester where it will delight and intrigue local audiences. The installation coincides with the Romanian rugby team playing in Leicester as part of the Rugby World Cup
